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

I have seen a number of these in our churches and added pictures in various threads, well worth looking out for!

I seem to recall seeing one in one of the churches in Sandwich during a visit a couple of years ago. Cannot remember the name now but it is a large one near the town now sadly disused.

I wan't quite sure where to put this post, but I guess memorials is about right. Whilst surfing the net this afternoon (work was more than a bit slow) I came across this item on the Norfolk BBC page (don't ask, it really was that slow a day)

And I got to thinking whether there were any in Kent, and there are
