  • This is an interesting statue but needs some renovation. More I think needs to be made of it. Most people use the church as a cut through into the town from a carpark so unless you were searching for ...  more »

  • Gravesend is a pretty town, although there is not much to see. You go there to catch the ferry to ferry across the Thames, at Tilbury. But having time available, it is worth taking a stroll through the country. In the Center there is a typical Anglican Church surrounded by a perfectly cut green grass lawn. In the middle of the lawn, in front of the façade, a little nearer to the exit gate, there is the statue of Pocahontas. Numerous signs refer throughout the city indicating its direction then it is impossible not to find it. A beautiful statue, and at the entrance gate there is a sign that summed up his sad story. Like many, I thought the cartoon Pocahontas was inspired by a fancy name. And instead of the native American Pocahontas was a lady who had married an English gentleman. Arrived in England with him soon died of illness at Gravesend. A curiosity: Nancy Reagan was his direct descendant.

  • Poinant reminder of Colonial times past. Here stands "Indian" Princess, Pocahontas, in a Kentish Town graveyard. You could write a long book on how she came to be here. (Her actual burial place is sadly lost).
