STONE CHAPEL, FAVERSHAM, KENT. Graham Mallory March 2007
I was surprised and delighted to find a wonderful example of Red Roman Brick in regular courses throughout the ragstone and squared tufa stone blockwork. The earliest part of this building was originally a Romano British Temple or mausoleum and dates from the middle of the 4th Century AD. From a distance this just appears to be a stone built building from a later century. The building is thought to be the only one to be later incorporated into a Christian chapel or building.
RESTORATION HOUSE, ROCHESTER. Gail & Carol: July 2007
A lovely time was spent at this beautiful property, the brickwork was maintained to a high standard and the gardens were magnificently cared for.
However, we were saddened by the intrusive new building development that was all too evident. Such a development should not be allowed in such close proximity to a historical gem. There had been no consideration given to the choice of brick or brickwork detail, resulting in the most bland and ugly monstrosity.
The loss of natural light and sunlight into the gardens is also a terrible consequence.
The most disturbing revelation was the damage done to a Tudor brick wall!

"These pictures sum up the variety of stunning brick that is on show throughout this town. I really hope you decide to add this location to one of your Society Tours in the near future!"
