Club Members enjoy Historical Walk of Otford

SI Sevenoaks were looking forward to a planned historical walk of Otford – a pretty village just north of Sevenoaks.  Member Valerie Caton had organised it and member Margaret Nicholson, an Otford resident, had prepared an informative talk for us.   We went ahead with our walk, even though it was raining hard as we set off!  Undaunted, we followed Margaret, trying not to spike each other with our umbrellas, and had a really interesting  time, including learning some hitherto unknown facts about the duck pond and the Royal Palace there.  We spent a little time in the pretty church of St Bartholomew and finished up in the Olive Branch Café, which is part of the Hospice of Hope charity shop in Otford High Street, where we enjoyed some more chat and a delicious cream tea!  The photo shows us in the field in front of the Palace.
