Kentish Ragstone is a distinctive hard sandy limestone from the Hythe Formation of the Weald. It has been used as an attractive and functional building stone across Greater London and the South East of England throughout the centuries, particularly in mediaeval times when it was used in prominent historic buildings such as the Tower of London, the mediaeval Guildhall and Royal Fusiliers buildings, all in London. In Kent, Leeds Castle, the Archbishop’s Palace in Maidstone, Westgate in Canterbury, the keep at Dover Castle, Knole House, Ightham Mote and Maidstone Prison were all built of Kentish Ragstone. It is the most utilised hard rock within Kent and is commonly seen throughout the county, particularly in houses, walls and churches.
