  • The Kent History hear all about the Making of Kent

    The Kent History hear all about the Making of Kent

    4th December 2019

    The Kent History Group aim to study Kent’s socio-economic and industry heritage through research, field studies and visits to sites across the county.

    Several members of MOT 3 visited the Mary Quant exhibition at the V & A and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • The Strollers enjoyed a late summer walk in Petts Wood

    5th November 2019

    There are many walks in most National Trust managed woods and Petts Wood is ideal for a stroll at any time of the year. We particularly wanted to see the memorial to William Willett. It was his early work in 1907 that paved the way for the government to think of British Summer time. In 1914,...
