In preparation for a talk on the Wealden hall houses of Southfleet, I decided to take some photographs for my PowerPoint presentation. At the last moment George decided to accompany me. We started in Red Street, first photographing Chapter Farmhouse and then the Black Lion pub. We then made our way to the church area, where by chance we met an old friend Terry Poole. He had lived in the village all his life and was happy to show us around and tell us something of the buildings and history. Our last port of call was the Wheatsheaf pub, where we took the opportunity to quench our thirst.
