News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Thank you Bryn, I am grateful.  I gather that the house doesn't stand anymore and not sure of an exact date!

Kind Regards
Mike

Would members know if Woodstock Park, once the home of the Twopeny family still stands?   I think from memory the building was/is on land now owned by Shell Research, Sittingbourne.

I have found that Sidney Edward Twopeny died aged 17 of Woodstock Park died October 12rh 1901.  His death meant the end of the Twopeny family name, after Charles Twopeny, a Mayor of Hythe between 1919-1922.   I wondered if anyone had details of the old house, please?


With thx
