Faversham Chapel of Our Lady of Elverton

Faversham Chapel of Our Lady of Elverton
The original Roman building was roughly square, with walls about 5m long, and about 1m wide. This building has been interpreted as a Romano-British mausoleum.

Partially overlying the earlier Roman building, but making use of its surviving walls, are the ruins of a mainly flint-built medieval church, about 24 metres in length and up to 7.5 metres wide. There may have been an earlier timber-built Saxon church on the site.

The church used the Roman building as the chancel of the church, while the nave was built to the west. The nave and the chancel were extended in the 13th century.
