"Fifteen Acres" - A remnant of Parsonage Farm
View from the east end of Parsonage Road. This land was part of "Fifteen Acres", one of the few fields of Parsonage Farm that has survived the expansion of the new town of Herne Bay. On the 1840 Tythe Map Parsonage Farm consisted of a patchwork of fields spread between the old village of Herne TR1665 almost down to the sea shore, then amounting to 165 acres. By the end of the 19th century the farm had been squeezed down to a few fields of cattle supplying 'The Creameries' in the town TR1868 : "The Creameries & Post Office", Herne Bay and by 1914 Parsonage Farm was virtually no more.
