MONKTON MONKTON STREET
TR 26 NE
(South side)
1/71 Monkton Court
GV II
Monastic grange now house. C15 rebuilt C18 and C19. Flint with freestone
and red brick dressings, extended in red and brown brick. Plain tiled
roof. Two storeys and attic with oversailing gable end to centre left,
1 hipped dormer and stacks to left and rear right. Three segmental
headed glazing bar sashes on first floor and 2 tripartite glazing bar
sashes on ground floor with large central projecting C20 porch with
boarded door and sidelights. Left return: flint walls carried up into
gable end. C18 and C19 additions to rear. The flintwork (at least 3
feet thick) and stone quoins are remains of work carried out either by
Prior Selling (c.1480) or Prior Goldstone (c.1500). Until the late C19
they had stone mullioned windows. Extensive stone and timber built ranges
were destroyed late C19. The cellars and footings in part remain. No
interior details remain. This was once the grange and occasional retreat
of monks of Canterbury Cathedral, the central manor for that half of
Thanet not administered from the Abbey of St. Augustine's grange at
Minster. (See Hasted, vol.X, p.254.)
