Hernhill is a village and civil parish between Faversham and Canterbury in Kent, England . The parish includes the hamlets of Crockham, Dargate, The Fostall, Lamberhurst (Hernhill), Oakwell, Staple Street, Thread, Waterham and Wey Street. Wikipedia includes a description of Darham in its article on Hernhill. There is also a parish named Lamberhurst near Tunbridge Wells in Kent.
Hernhill was originally an ancient parish in the Boughton under Blean Hundred. Between 1894 and 1934 it was part of the Faversham Rural District. In 1934 Faversham Rural District was abolished and its parishes were transferred to Swale Rural District. Since 1974 the area is covered by the non-metropolitan Swale District.
When the rural district was altered in 1934, part of Hernhill was absorbed into Whitstable.
