Tonge Mill

By Della_W
This is a shot of Tonge Mill, looking across the pond from where my previous uploads were taken. The white building is a 17th century barn, previuosly used for storage and bakery.

Tonge got its name back in the Saxon days, when the Saxon chief Hengist asked for land from the King of Britain, Vortiger, and was told he could have so little as yon poor hide will compass. He then had the hide cut into thin strips (thongs), and laid these out to give around 80 acres. Hengist later became King of Kent after building a castle on his new land.
