Chantry House across Gore Pond
The Chantry was founded in 1392. A History of the County of Kent says "Richard II on 19 July, 1392, granted licence for Master Robert de Bradegare and others to found at Bredgar a college of one chaplain and two clerk scholars who should serve God and celebrate divine service in the parish church of Bredgar at all times except when the said scholars were busy with their studies." The college succumbed to the dissolution of the monasteries in 1542.
In the first half of the 20th century it was inhabited as four cottages but has been a single private dwelling since the 1950s.
