The hall is conveniently situated to the south of the main A28 and is on the corner with the High Street. Garlinge has

predominates in the immediate locality although the Rodney Public House immediately adjoins to the east.
The property comprises a modest, single storey former church hall with an attached outbuilding. It has predominantly
flint elevations with stone quoins and window details and a natural slate roof covering. Facing Dent-de-Lion Road is
the entrance porch leading into the building.

further two smaller rooms, kitchen, and WC accommodation.
