The Church of St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence is the oldest building in Faversham and is a much-loved landmark. The church dates to the 12th century and is Grade I-listed. Next door to the church is Davington Priory, famous for being the home of Bob Geldof, who rose to stardom with the Boomtown Rats and organised Live Aid. Sadly, this church is where the funerals for Geldof’s wife, Paula Yates, and daughter, Peaches Geldof, were held in 2000 and 2014, respectively. Unusually, this church is dedicated to two saints.
