KINGSDOWN St John the Evangelist

The parish of St John the Evangelist was carved out of the original parish of Ringwould. The village had begun to grow and a local gentleman, William Curling and his wife agreed to pay for a Church ,which was finished in 1853 on a splendid site overlooking the sea.

The church is normally open daily and is accessed on foot from the bottom of Upper St.Kingsdown, no vehicle access via Church Cliff. Use CT14 8BJ or
