(east side)
Remains of
monastic building,
13.8.68 now outbuilding
Probable first floor hall, now outbuilding. Circa 1235 and extended C18.
Flint with Caen stone dressings and with plain tiled roof extended with
brick and plain tiled roof. Main building of 2 storeys, with parapet
gables, stair turret and arched lights to east (right return), 2 large
segmentally headed openings on first floor, and smaller casement with
carriage doors to left on ground floor. Brick surround garret window on
left return. The remains of a fireplace-back survive on the upper floor,
making the traditional view of the building as a chapel unlikely, it is
more probably a first-floor hall house associated with the monastic
grange of St. Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury. Single storey range added
to left C18, with 2 boarded doors and wooden casement, and stack at end
left. (See Archaeologia Cantiana, no. 12, p.376).
