On a small mound, some yards from Cottington Road in the Cliffsend area of Thanet, Kent, stands a stone monument known as St. Augustine's Cross. The 'Celtic Style' cross bears an inscription which des­cribes the landing of this alien monk at nearby Richborough, where he "---on this spot met Ethelbert and preached his first sermon to our countrymen. A.D. 596".
