Around Hernhill

Surrounded by orchards, Hernhill is still largely a farming community. There are several noteworthy buildings including a half-timbered manor house, and a 200 year old farmhouse which once housed parish paupers.

In the churchyard of St Michael's there are the unmarked graves of Sir William Courtenay (Mad Tom) and six of his followers who were shot at the battle of Bossenden Wood,in 1838, the last armed uprising in England.

Five minutes walk from Church Oast are Mount Ephraim Gardens.

There are plenty of walks and cycle rides in the surrounding countryside.
