Milton Chantry


Milton Chantry dates from around 1321AD and is thought to be the oldest building in Gravesend. Built on the site of a leper hospital founded in 1189AD, the Chantry, which was once a chantry chapel has been remodelled and has had several uses over the centuries, including a tavern (around 1697), a barracks (18th century) and in World War II a gas decontamination chamber.

According to Anna Dubuis in an article entitled ‘The ghosts and legends of north Kent’ which appeared in the Gravesend Reporter on Wednesday 31 October 2012, two figures in robes were seen walking through a wall in Milton Chantry.
