Pictures of Eynsford
in the county of Kent
This is a small town in the Darent Valley. Way back in the mists of history it was thought to be an important town, but is now not much bigger than a large village. It is however exceedingly attractive, with a village ford, a quaint pub beside the church and pretty colour-washed, and timber-frame houses.
The parish church is noteworthy, it was originally Norman, but most of what we see today is from the 13th-century. There is an elaborate west door and a wide impressive arch. The building is crowned with a stunning slender spire.
Eynsford Castle is now a set of romantic ruins of which very little remains, however visitors to the site can enjoy quiet riverside walks along the River Darent which is crossed by a medieval bridge.
Close-by is Lullingstone Castle, the historic family mansion visited by Henry VIII and Queen Anne, in the grounds is the Church of St.Botolph. Both house and grounds are open to the public. Lullingstone Roman Villa is also nearby, here you can see the remains of the villa, mosaics and baths, there is a shop for souvenirs.
You can quite easily be forgiven for thinking time has crept past Eynsford, for as a whole it has remained largely unchanged for decades, it still possesses the picture postcard image of a century or more ago.
Eynsford is a lovely place with a friendly, peaceful atmosphere. It is ideal for a day out, romantic weekend or a longer stay to explore all this beautiful region of Kent has to offer.
