Travelogue author Celia Fiennes described Maidstone as "a very neate market town as you shall see in the Country". In the 1720s, Daniel Defoe noted that: "Maidstone is eminent for the plenty of provisions, and richness of lands of the country all around it and for the best market in the country." The building in the picture is the parish church of Maidstone.
