Ruins of a College
of Benedictine Canons
at Old Malling Farm,
TQ 41 SW 10/556 20.8.65.
Aldulf, Prince or Duke of the South Saxons, founded a College here about 765
which was refounded by Archbishop Theobald for Benedictine Canons in 1150.
It was dedicated to St Michael. Later the College moved further south to the
site of the present Malling Deanery. It was suppressed in 1547, and the Church
had disappeared by 1628, when the present Parish Church of St Michael, South
Malling, was built. All that remains of the College above ground at the original
site is a piece of rubble wall in the garden of Old Malling Farm, which is
a C19 house, with the remains of a pointed window hardly above ground level.
Nothing is visible at the second site.
