Grovehurst: old "Clothmaster's Hall"
Grovehurst is an old "Clothmaster's Hall" (partly Tudor) used as a residence,
office and warehouse when Kentish Broadcloth LinkExternal link was being made here. See TQ7139 : Broadford: an old "Clothmaster's Hall" and TQ7139 : The Weaverís Cottage, Capel Cross. It is said that Grovehurst's cellars, and secret passages leading from them, were used for contraband by the Hawkhurst Gang LinkExternal link - see TQ6940 : Gibbet Lane, Horsmonden, once the site of many a grisly execution. The 'Grovehurst' name is probably derived from that of Henry de Grofhurst who, in the 14th century, was Rector of Horsmonden for fifty years and built the parish church, St Margaret's TQ7038 : St Margaretís church, parish of Horsmonden, and its history.
