Having left Canterbury, we drove ten miles to Faversham, the home of Kentish Ale and in particular, the Shepherd Neame brewery.  Jayne showed me the wharf. An old fishing boat and a Thames Barge were alongside, pinned against the dockside by the stiff breeze.  It was a very high tide, forced up by low pressure and the strong breeze.  In places, the water level was above the wharf.

We drove back into the town centre and parked the car.  On foot, we walked to the market square and the guidhall above the covered market.  We went to The Sun inn to escape the freezing wind and had our last drink in Kent.  For me, it was half a pint of Spitfire.

Having returned to the car, we drove to Ospringe just out of town where Jayne showed me a 13th Century house that she had once lived in.  It looked rather neglected now which in this day and age of restoration and preservation, seemed very sad and unforgivable.

Our journey home revealed the extent of the snowfall elsewhere in the county.  Much of it was in thaw now, but had clearly caused havoc the day before.
