Stone Chapel, Faversham

The remains of this stone church can be found just outside Faversham along the A2, it can be seen from the road although I had never noticed it before.  Within the walls the stone altar can still be seen and the raised chancel is obvious.  The oldest part of the structure is from the 4th century and is easily found due to the Roman brick used in construction.  Other parts of the church date from the 11th century, early 13th century as well as later additions in the 13th century.  The church was dedicated to Our Lady of Elwarton and was eventually abandoned in the first part of the 16th century.
