Hernhill is a village and civil parish between Faversham and Canterbury in southeast England. The parish includes the hamlets of Crockham, Dargate, The Fostall, Lamberhurst, Oakwell, Staple Street, Thread, Waterham and Wey Street.ChurchesDuring the Anglo-Saxon Christian period (from 600 AD) there was a Christian church in Hernhill, built of wood. In 1120 this was replaced with a church built of wood and stone and dedicated to St Stephen.St Michael's ChurchIn about 1450 the church was replaced again, this time with a stone and flint church building on the same site. This 15th-century structure, dedicated to St Michael, incorporated some of the 12th-century masonry and has survived to this day.St Michael's is perpendicular in style and has a square tower with a ring of eight bells. The main door and door to the bell tower are 15th century, and the rood screen is 16th century. Much of the furniture dates from a restoration of the church in the 19th century, and a Lady Chapel was added in 1928.As of 2013, the building is still in use as a Christian church and holds services regularly.The churchyard contains a monument to parishioners killed in the nearby Battle of Bossenden Wood in 1838, said to be the last armed uprising on British soil.
