The History of Stone
Stone was an ancient settlement site. The 13th-century parish church, dedicated to St Mary the Virgin at Stone, was known as the “Lantern of Kent” from its beacon light known to all sailors on the river. It is one of Kent’s most dramatic churches and is renowned for its Gothic sculpture made by the masons who built Westminster Abbey.
Stone castle is located about a mile to the south of Greenhithe and just north of the Roman Watling Street dating from the mid-11th century, it is thought to have been constructed without licence during the reign of King Stephen, but was later permitted to remain by King Henry ll after his accession to the throne.
