St Peter & St Paul
The Church of St Peter & St Paul, at Yalding, like the village itself, is pre-Norman.
The Domesday book (completed in 1086) refers to a church in Yalding, but the first stone church there is said to have been built in 1154, by Richard de Clare, Earl of Hertford. The chancel and tower of the present building date from C13th, though there have been various additions in the succeeding centuries. The church is built mainly from the local Kentish ragstone, with some Reigate stone and Tunbridge Wells sandstone and there are some red brick 'quoins' on the tower.
The church was damaged by fire in 1693 and as a result of this, the upper part of tower was rebuilt in early C18th. The six bells in tower, were also re-cast, after the fire, and date to 1696. The Church is registered as a Grade I listed building.
