Ospringe is a village and civil parish in the English county of Kent. It had a population of 715 in 2001. Located south of Faversham, Ospringe forms part of the Borough of Swale. It lies on the Roman road Watling Street (nowadays the A2 road), called Ospringe Street in the village. Including the historic Maison Dieu. Another section of the village lies on Water Lane leading southwards towards Painters Forstal. The remains of substantial Roman buildings have been found to its north west; the ruins of the abandoned Stone Chapel lie nearby.HistoryThe Roman ruins are believed to be the site of the Durolevum mentioned in the Antonine Itinerary, although this remains uncertain.In 1798, Edward Hasted records that it was once called 'Ospringes' and this name comes from the spring or stream that rises in the village and used to lead to Davington pond.The town was once separate from the hundred of Faversham and had its own constable. In 1935 part of the parish (including Ospringe Street) became part of the Borough of Faversham. This enabled electricity to be installed in many of the properties. Other parish matters (such as rubbish collection) were now controlled by Faversham, removing the need to dispose of waste in a local disused quarry.Our United Kingdom (UK) tourist route planner allows you to schedule your trip to Ospringe, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
