TQ9129 : Ebony

taken 17 years ago, near to Reading Street, Kent, England

The Ordnance Survey knew about Ebony in 1877 when they marked it big on their 6 inch map. But at some stage since then it has dropped out of their gazetteer. The name describes an area which is a northerly outlier of the Isle of Oxney LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . It still survives in the name of the civil parish Stone-cum-Ebony LinkExternal link . On the right of this image is a cottage opposite Hayes Farm. The low evening sun is picking out some very interesting depressions in the field which might be worth archaeological investigation.
