Brass of Henry de Grofhurst, Horsmonden church
A 46 inch brass in memory of Henry de Grofhurst, rector from 1311 - 1361. It is one of the most important treasures of the church. Henry was the man largely responsible for the building we see here today and the brass shows him standing beneath a canopy, robed in mass vestments, a lion at his feet and a scroll in Latin across his breast. Experts believe the brass was engraved after 1338.
