The Parish Church of St Augustine of Canterbury at Flimwell, Kent was built in 1839. That original church, however, was much smaller than the church of today and was only the size of the nave of the present-day church. Before the tower acquired its spire, it was flat-roofed and it was from that roof that Sir J F W Herschel (who was President of the Royal Astronomical Society three times and who lived in Hawkhurst) made many of his astronomical observations. The church is set in a churchyard dotted with many interesting headstones. Not the least of these is that on the grave of Margaret Brodie Herschel, the wife of Sir J F W Herschel. While she is buried here, her husband's grave is in Westminster Abbey. There is also a Commonwealth War Grave. This grave is also slightly unusual as it is the grave of Sapper C Colvin who was killed in the Second World War; on 26 april 1944 when he was 24 years old.
