St Margaret's Church tower in ruins AD 1860 [Very inaccurate date].
A mounted black and white picture of the church of St Margaret of Antioch, St Margaret’s at Cliffe, in a state of disrepair and dated 1860. This is probably copied from an illustrated guide book which dates from earlier in the 19th century – possibly 1845. See SMHS/2011.4785a/THE CHURCH/1/8. An illustration in the Gentleman’s Magazine of 1803 (SMHS/2011.4782) shows the church in a similar state of disrepair. The date of 1773 in brickwork on the south side of the tower is probably the actual date at which this particular collapse was made good.
