The Higham Park estate can be traced back to 1320 when it was ceded to the 'De Hegham' family by Edward II. The current building is a large neoclassical mansion, once the home of eccentric racing driver Count Louis Zborowski. His giant-engined "Chitty Bang Bang" cars were built there, as was Babs, the vehicle used in J.G. Parry-Thomas's attempt at the land speed record at Pendine Sands in 1927. Annoyingly, when I tried to take a photo of the place a few years ago, the owner ran out of the house and told me to go away. Nice people! Clearly there was no one home today :)

The Posting House. 18th century exterior with a late medieval core. It has an early 16th century inscription on the fireplace lintel. The house is visible in Schellinks' 1661 drawing of the High Street. Canterbury Cathedral archives record a brawl here involving Christopher Applegate, a Marlowe contemporary.
