The mediaeval churches of Romney Marsh were built by the lords of the manor on the Marsh to serve the communities., the churches were often on a large scale to reflect the importance of the parish or the importance of the patron. Nearly all the churches were in existence by 1100, likely as wooden buildings being built later in stone. Snargate church was built in the early 13th century and in the 15th century, many of the churches had great towers added such as at Ivychurch and Snargate. The grave of the author Edith Nesbit can be seen at St Mary-in-the marsh.
