Rochester, Kent

We've been there today with my mum. Had a really nice meal of guinea fowl, buttered kale and giant chunky chips mmmm + raspberry cheesecake ice cream
Then we looked around in Baggins bookshop - the 'biggest' 2nd hand bookshop in England. Got "Made in England" by Dorothy Hartley for a couple of quid ! - a book that I've heard of and read about a lot but never actually seen
Also got Collins Guide to Tree Planting by Herbert Edlin - one of my heroes.
I love looking at books in the flesh rather than online although we have had some success recently selling books on Amazon.

It's a beautiful town on the River Medway with a proper castle and a cathedral and tons of interesting buildings of all eras - some great timber framed ones.
Also a very strong Dickensian connection and loads of antique and junk shops.

The website's been updated with this years diary dates & some stuff and pics about chaircaning.

Have a look
