In 1791, the church was hit by a bolt of lightning, and with the exception of the lower part of the church tower was completely destroyed. A temporary church was constructed in 1805, but in 1870 it was removed and the present church was constructed.

Although a delightful country village, Speldhust is most conveniently located close to Royal Tunbridge Wells, less than a quarter of a hour’s drive away, where all the major high street chains are to be found, department stores, quality restaurants, theatres and entertainment, and of course the famous ‘Pantiles’. Also frequent and fast trains to London; alternative stations close by are High Brooms, and Tonbridge (around 35-45 minutes to London, 4 trains an hour).
