    The old village church, now isolated and seldom sought by visitors, has in its churchyard the tomb of Anne West of nearby Bayhall, who once dreamed she was buried in a trance and ordered that when she was in fact buried, the lid was to be left off her coffin and one end of the tomb was to be left open. She also left instructions for her butler to bring food and drink to the opening every day for a year - just in case.
    When she died in 1903, aged 34, her wishes were respected and until 1947 one could still look down into the vault through an opening at one end. Poor Anne West. Her Bayhall, once the home of the great Kentish Culpeper family and also the Duke of Buckingham, is today a ruin, said to be haunted by her ghost.
