St Andrew's Church, Wellingham                    


There is no precise date for the founding of St Andrew's Church, but the experts believe that the nave was built by the Normans and the chancel was added in the 13th century.

The first firm date in St Andrew's history is 1304, when its first rector is recorded. Blomefield calls him William de Holm, but Bryant gives him the grander title Ralph de Hulmo de Wysinguete*.
