The Medway now passes the village and church of Wateringbury. The mansion, called the Place, is the property of the descendants of Sir Wm. Style. About a mile and a half in advance, we approach Teston, with its picturesque bridge of stone, consisting of seven arches, three of which are cycloidal, and the others gothic. The village is situated in a beautiful and hightly cultivated district, gradually rising from the banks of the river, and, with the picturesque church and spire, have afforded the interesting sub ject of the annexed engraving. Below the bridge, on a beautiful eminence, is seen Testonhouse, formerly called Barham Court, surrounded with delightful and varied scenery. [80-81]
