near to Maidstone, Kent, Great Britain

Archbishops' Palace
Archbishops' Palace
The Palace was rebuilt in 1348 by Archbishop Ufford, replacing a house that had been given by Rector William de Cornhill in about 1207/8 for use by archbishops. The palace was extended around 1349 - 1366 and in 1486 by later archbishops and formed part of a series of palaces used by archbishops in travelling around the diocese, such as Charing, Otford and Croydon. It is now used for civic offices and functions and as a Registry Office.
