Letheringham


Access to this small village is from Hoo or Easton, there is a wonderful watermill and gardens here with car parking nearby.

The Parish Church of St Mary has only the Abbey Farm buildings to keep it company,parts of 13c Augustinian Priory is incorporated into its Norman Nave. The tower arch dates from the late 12c and two brasses on the Chancel Wall are not to be missed [one dating from 1389] The sundial is very old too.

There is a walk to Hoo Church or to Easton Farm Park, I had done the walk in reverse after being at Easton Farm Park and when arrivving at  Letheringham Church I developed a coughing fit which made me quite ill, fortunately for me the area was very isolated and my embarrassment was somewhat spared by taking refuge within the church!
