[edit] Location

Hartlip is situated between the M2 motorway (Strood to Canterbury) and the A2 main road from London to Canterbury. It is at Hartlip Hill, between Rainham and Newington on Watling Street, the old Roman road. It stands about 50m above sea level.

Ordnance Survey grid reference: TQ 838 642 GB. See map.

[edit] Name

The name Hartlip derives from the Old English hliep, which meant a gate or fence. In combination with heorot (hart or stag), the name therefore means a "gate over which harts leap". The first recorded version of the name was Heordlyp in the 11th century.

[edit] Buildings

There are the remains of an extensive Roman villa discovered in Danes Field.

Hartlip parish church, named St. Michael and All Angels, is built of flint and has a peal of 6 bells. The oldest bell, number 5, was cast by Robert Burford between 1392 and 1418 ? see here for more details. The church registers go back to 1538. The village also has a Cardiphonia United Methodist church, built in 1821.

Hartlip's school is one of the oldest establishments for primary education in North East Kent. It was endowed in 1678 by Mary Gibbon and rebuilt in 1855. It is situated next to the parish church, with an adjoining gateway.

The only public house is the Rose and Crown. It is situated at the lower end of Hollow Lane, whose name is reputed to come from a secret tunnel leading to it from the church.
