Notes: The church of Monketon has long been delapidated, though the exact ground plot is still visible, as are two large yews which Hasted noted in his 1798 History and Topographical Survey of Kent. The are numbered 9 and 10 on the plan and would have grown on the south side of the church. The exact site is fenced off and not accessible to the public. South of the old church site on an old trackway are the remains of a younger yew avenue, of which the most southerly tree (number 8 on the plan) is also featured here.
