    Another outing this time to the Fashion and Textile Museum to see an exhibition about Zandra Rhodes - another big influence on fashion. This exhibition is to celebrate her 50 years in the textile and fashion business and whether her style and designs apppeal to you there were some stunning examples of extraordinary designs, each of them very individual and there were also costumes designed for operas.

    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.
