This rare surviving chapel is the only remaining structure of the Preceptory of the Knights Hospitallers of the Order of St John of Jerusalem formed in 1113. The chapel and gardens are surrounded by a moat, one arm of which is the River Darenth. However, access is to the chapel and the gardens only, not the house adjacent which is privately owned. For things to do in Kent and St John's Jerusalem in Dartford.
