CANCELLED – WE ARE VERY SORRY, BUT DUE TO THE CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES WE HAVE HAD TO CANCEL THIS TALK. WE ARE HOPING TO RE-BOOK THIS FOR NEXT YEAR AND WILL INFORM EVERYONE OF A NEW DATE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
By David Clarke
Thursday 3rd September at 7pm
This talk is an engaging account of David Clarke’s walk between four National Trust properties; Bodiam Castle, Sissinghurst Castle, Scotney Castle and Bateman’s, that explores the history and the industrial past of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in this part of Kent and East Sussex. Such a varied landscape brings together tales to tell of Mad Jack Fuller and Bloody Baker, Admiral ‘Foulweather Jack’ Norris, and Captain Swing. There are tales of smugglers and Mechanical riots, Napoleon’s horse, aliens in Robertsbridge and, of course, that ‘vengeful dragon’ in Angley Wood.
