St Mary's Hall
House. Cl7 and circa 1830. Red brick with plain tiled roof to
north, painted brick with hipped slate roof to south. Double
depth plan. 2 storeys; 3 window front, sashes on first-floor,
2 outer bays on ground-floor, united by slate roof to form porch
between on ground-floor. St. Mary's Hall was the home of Henry
Pye from 1845-1909. He made many innovations in farming practices
including promoting the use of steam engines (by Aveling of Rochester)
for ploughing and threshing. By draining the marshes he improved
the grazing and eliminated the fevers which had so reduced the
population in the past.
