  • Faversham

    Faversham was granted its first charter in AD 811, and the town centres on Market Square, where a market is still held. Abbey Street is the show street, restored since 1961 as part of a conservation scheme. It is named after the abbey founded by King Stephen in 1147 and destroyed at the Reformation. The houses in Abbey Street are mellowed brick and half-timbered, leading to 17th century warehouses on Standard Quay, built with reused stone and timbers from the abbey.
    Number 80 is part of the abbey gatehouse, rebuilt in 1538-40 for Thomas Arden, mayor. He was murdered here in 1550 and his tale is told in ARDEN OF FAVERSHAM, a play of 1592. West Street is another rewarding street of half-timbered buildings. The church has a graceful 'flying spire', a well-loved landmark.
