Thursday evening a collection of film entitled ‘The Best of the South East. These were shown on a cinemascope screen for a very special 40 year old western made by South Downs Film Makers.
Friday was a visit to Allington Caste next to the river Medway, one of Kent’s best kept secrets. Dating back to medieval times, the Castle interior is fully furnished and in character with its medieval origins,. We visited and had afternoon tea in the Great Hall in which Henry VIII & Anne Boleyn dined with Sir Thomas Wyatt around 1530.
The sun was shining for our trip on the Kentish Lady from Maidstone to Allington Lock. We then took the coach to Faversham where we had lunch followed by a tour of the Shepherd Neame Brewery and beer tasting.
