About Salmestone Grange

Between 1290 and 1400 Salmestone Grange served as a rural 'retreat' for the abbot and monks of St. Augustine's Abbey at Canterbury

The history of St. Augustine's Abbey came to an abrupt end with it's closure in 1538 and the Thanet estates, including Salmestone Grange, passed into the hands of the Crown, and then, in 1559, to the Dean and Chapter of Canterbury, who kept them until 1886.

Present Day

In 1936 the then owner, Major H.S. Hatfield, presented the house, chapel and surrounding land to the modern Benedictine Abbey of St. Augustine at Ramsgate, who began restoration of the buildings.

In 1950 the Grange was taken over by the Canonesses of St. Augustine, who in turn sold it to the present owner.
