An Autumn Excursion to some Kent Villages (19/09/08)

After filling the petrol tank of his car, George was stopped by a motorcyclist and told that he was leaving a trail of petrol on the road. He called in Geoff, who said he would repair the car once we had driven off some of the petrol. We decided to take a trip around some Kent villages, so on Sunday morning we set off on our journey. Due in part to bad map reading our route did not go entirely to plan but we eventually arrived at our first stop, Charing, where we had a look at the Archbishop’s Palace and the church. It was then on to Wye, where we had decided to find somewhere for a Sunday lunch. We decided on ‘The New Flying Horse’ but were warned by our table companions that my first choice, the roast beef, was not up to the usual standards. That was not a good recommendation. I chose a pork dish and George fish and chips. After lunch we searched for the Wye Crown before making our way to Godmersham, Chilham and Lenham.
