Faversham's Magna Carta

There has been controversy sparked by the report in the Faversham News.

We were represented at the meeting about the future of 12 Market Place. There was no discussion about selling the Magna Carta. The Society's view is, to quote William Morris, that “We are only the trustees for those who come after us.”

It is not for us to sell the Magna Carta.

The option of loaning the Magna Carta for exhibition for short periods abroad is worthy of serious consideration. This would raise revenue which could be used for heritage in Faversham and it could encourage people to visit Faversham.
