Headcorn

Headcorn is a village and civil parish in the borough of Maidstone in Kent, England. The parish is on the floodplain of the River Beult south east of Maidstone; the village is 8 mi southeast of Maidstone, on the A274 road to Tenterden. In addition to the parish church, dedicated to saints Peter and Paul, there are churches and chapels for the Methodist and Roman Catholic congregations. There is a small airfield located nearby, where there is an aviation museum and a parachuting centre. Headcorn Parachute Club is the only skydiving club in Kent and is home to national champions and world-record holders. Headcorn railway station is on the South Eastern Main Line between Dover, it was opened on 31 August 1842. On 1 December the same year, the South Eastern Railway opened the second section of its main line onward to Ashford. By 1844, trains were running from London to Dover. A Neolithic polished flint axe was found in the stream near the present school in Headcorn, a bronze palstave axehead dating from the Bronze Age from New House Farm reveal the presence of people in the area from early times.

However, just to the north of the village a total of four much earlier Paleolithic flint handaxes have been found. Three were found west of one from north-west of Tong; these have originated from the river gravel terrace that survives beneath Tong Bank. This is evidence for a former ancient river system that predates the last glacial episode which ended around 15,000 years ago; the handaxes date from 250,000 BP. There is evidence from one site in the south of the parish for a probable farmstead that dates from the prehistoric Iron Age into the early Roman period; this was discovered by fieldwork undertaken by Neil Aldridge and members of the Kent Archaeological Society between 1993–95. Evidence for iron smelting, in the form of iron slag, a small cemetery with three Roman cremations in pottery vessels were found. There were a number of ditches and part of a Pre-Roman roundhouse; the earliest written records are references in charters of King Wihtred and King Offa to Wick Farm, 724 AD and Little Southernden, 785 AD.

Headcorn may have originated as a "denn" or clearing, to which pigs were driven in the fall to feed on acorns in the Wealden Forest. Although Headcorn does not appear in the Domesday Book of 1086, the Domesday Monachorum, records the existence of a church at Hedekaruna. According to the Oxford Names Companion, the name could mean'tree-trunk of a man called Hydeca'. Henry of Ospringe, was appointed the first rector in 1222 by King Henry III. However, in 1239, the King gave the den of Headcorn, with the rectorial endowments, to the Maison Dieu at Ospringe, near Faversham. In 1251, the Master and Brethren of Ospringe, were granted a weekly market on Thursdays and an annual fair at Headcorn on 29 June, St Peter and St Paul's Day. In 1482 the Ospringe house was dissolved and in 1516, St John's College Cambridge, was given the Maison Dieu properties; the fair was held on 12 June, having been merged with the Trinity-tide fair of Moatenden Priory. The Trinitarian Order, or Order of the Holy Trinity for the Redemption of Captives, was founded in France in 1198.

Among the first of the dozen houses it established in England, was Moatenden Priory dating from 1224. The site is off Maidstone Road Headcorn. In 1536, the priory was suppressed, among England's smaller houses, its revenues went to the King; the site was excavated by Neil Aldridge along with others of the Kent Archaeological Society and the site of the priory church and other structures including the cloister garth were recorded beneath the garden of the present house which incorporates part of the Medieval western range of the priory. This was published in Archaeologia Cantiana for 1995; the pottery from the excavation site dates from the 13th–15th centuries, there were three lead papal seals from the site. The site is surrounded by a large moat and a number of monastic fishponds survive; the former course of the Maidstone to Rye road passed alongside the site of the priory. During the excavations earlier material including Roman pottery and a coin was found at Moatenden indicating settlement here over an extended period.

The prosperity brought to Headcorn by the weaving industry, established in the reign of King Edward III, is reflected in the houses built at that time and the enlargement of the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul. In 1450, eighty men of Headcorn took part in Jack Cade's rebellion and subsequently received pardons; the remains of the Headcorn Oak are near the south door of the parish church. It was extensively damaged by fire on 25 April 1989, but continued to produce new growth until July 1993, it has been claimed. However, Ian Mitchell of the Forestry Commission, an expert on old oaks, compared his own measurements taken in 1967, with those made by Robert Furley FSA, in 1878 and estimated it to be only 500 years old; the chancel of the present parish church, is believed to mark the site of the nave of its 11th century counterpart and the Lady Chapel that of the 12th century south aisle. The 13th century saw the construction of a new nave, about half the length of the present one and also a cell on the site of the vicar's vestry, which dates from the early 15th century.

The nave was completed in the present south aisle in the early 15th. Late in the same century, the tower and south porch were built. Kent's Chantry was founded in the Lady Chapel in 1466, under licence from King Edward IV. In the south aisle, just outside the Lady Chapel and in the south wall, is an altar-tomb bearing the Culpeper arms, which figure over the

This song can be heard in an added remixed mashup with L'Amour Toujours in its US radio version, it was sampled in the song "Jump" from Lupe Fiasco's 2017 album Drogas Light. The song featured a popular music video, made by Andreas Hykade, in the style of La Linea; the music video shows a boy with a floating head and no arms walking toward what appears to be a shark that multiplies itself and can change direction. This style was used in "The Riddle", another song by Gigi D'Agostino by British singer Nik Kershaw. Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics
