Offham is built around the village green on which is sited the only remaining quintain in England. Quintains were introduced as a military training exercise by the Romans and were developed during the middle ages to practice the sport of jousting.
Offham is about two miles from Kings Hill and just over a mile from the historic and busy town of West Malling, which boasts six public houses and numerous restaurants of differing cuisine and budgets. Malling Abbey was built in the eleventh century by Archbishop Gundolph and still houses an order of Cistercian Nuns. St. Leonard′s Tower stands at the edge of the town and is a square stone fortification. It was also built by Gundolph, possibly to protect the masons building the abbey from the attentions of brigands and dissenters sheltering in the nearby forests. Gundolph also built The White Tower at the Tower of London and the great keep at Rochester, both reputed to be the earliest stone fortifications in England; however, there is a possibility that St Leonard′s Tower pre-dated both.
