At the rear of the Methodist Church, High Street, Dymchurch - we are open the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month 2-5pm.
On the weekend of the 9th & 10th of August 2014 we held an exhibition in the School Room at the Methodist Church in Dymchurch of the service men from our villages who fought in the First World War. The exhibition is now available to view in the Heritage Room at the rear of the Methodist Church.
Our book, pictured right, tells the stories of the 113 men from our villages who attended the theatre of war. Although our war memorial has 10 names on it we have 29 service men who sadly lost their lives. We hope you find it interesting. The cost of the book is only £5.00.

Our group was formed in January 2010 after an initial meeting in the previous October where we asked the villagers their thoughts on forming a Heritage Group. The response was fantastic and we have gone from strength to strength with a strong membership. In this short time we have been live on Merdian News when we placed a time capsule in the new Sea Wall. We produced a Pictorial Exhibition of Dymchurch in the Plater Hall at the time of the opening ceremony of the Sea Wall which was performed by Lord Chris Smith. We also assisted Epiphany Productions for the Yesterday TV Channel with the programme "The Germans are coming" where our President, John Coker played a starring role.
