Kent & Sussex
Horsmonden, Kent, England
Horsmonden, Kent is a parish in the Weald of Kent, an area in south central Kent. It lies near the border with Sussex, and is surrounded by the Kent parishes of Lamberhurst, Brenchley, Yalding, Marden, and Goudhurst.
Historically, agriculture was a main occupation of the area, with hops and fruit as the predominant crops. Round oast houses, where the hops were dried, are common sites, although many have now been converted to residences. Iron smelting was also an important industry in bygone times.
The parish church, St. Margaret's, is located at the southern end of the parish some distance from the village center. The sandstone church building dates from the 14th century, and remains much the same as when first constructed.
