Artist's Description

Barfreston Church dated from the late c11 and was endowed by the Norman knight, Hugo de Port. In 1180 it was remodeled, possibly by Hugo’s grandson, and most of the amazing carvings date from that period. Extraordinarily, the Victorian restorer, R.C.Hussey concluded that some of the stone was moved here, probably from Hackington Abbey nearby that was demolished due to its being seen as a threat by the monks of Christ’s Church at Canterbury.
