The parish includes the hamlet of Marsborough, with Woodnesborough Hill, an artificial mount, supposed by some to be the Woodnesbeorth of the Saxon chronicle, and the scene of the battle between Celoed and Ina, kings of Mercia and the West Saxons. The land is partly in hop-gardens. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Canterbury, value £270, in the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Rochester. The church is dedicated to St. Mary. A gold coin with a figure of Victory was found here in 1514."
