Just happened to be in Gravesend and came across the statue. I wouldn't make a special effort to go there just to see it. It's worth looking round the church whilst there as more information about Pocahontas. If he is there, have a chat to...More

We pass through here en route to the shops to get whatever we need for the Hotel that night, whilst down visiting family. It's a cracking statue in a lovely, almost hidden Churchyard. 7 years ago on my first trip there and I didn't even...More

An amazing view so do take a camera! A lot of history to take in from one statue. Defiantly worth seeing if you are interested.
