    They use all sorts of places for those film sets and mix them up, you have probably seen Bodiam Castle about a mile down the road from us in at least one film

    I have never noticed Robin Hood, prams are almost a rarity nowadays and midwives turn up in Mitsubishis. I used to wear a uniform like that, and to be fair there are a few schools that still have them, but they are mostly fee paying. Beanie hats are everywhere. 'Bangers' have improved since the days when they put so much water in sausages they would explode when fried, hence 'bangers', but there are plenty of places serving good traditional food, we went to a local pub today,,
    and I had shepherd's pie.

    It may not all be like it is in the films, but there are still lots of beautiful places.

    This plaque is on Ferox Hall Tonbridge his parents home where he had his laboratory.
    He invented a method to extract silver from ore without the need for mercury.
    Some sources claim his daughter was the first woman to create a photograph.

    This is my all time favourite, a gatehouse in Leigh.
    It will soon be partly covered in Wisteria.

    If you look at my profile, say "Hi!" But not in a creepy way.
