Westenhanger

Near this is the old baronial seat, some say the kingly palace, of Westenhanger, once the residence of the ill-fated Fair Rosamond. The remains are probably of the period of Edward III., and but poorly represent their pristine grandeur. Two miles north is Monk’s Horton Priory, and a short distance beyond, Lyminge Church; two miles to the east, Beachborough Park, and three miles to the south-east is Hythe.
