The ruins of the small Anglo-Saxon and medieval chapel of Stone-next-Faversham - the only Christian building in England to incorporate within its fabric the remains of a 4th century Romano-British pagan mausoleum.
It lay close to the probable site of the small Roman town of Durolevum and its Roman cemetery at Ospringe, finds from which can be seen at Maison Dieu.
