Three Intrepid Howlers go Ghost Hunting


One of the prettiest villages in Kent. It is a beautiful example of a Tudor one-street village. Buildings with half-timbered sides, gables and stone-hung red-tiled roofs. In 1939 The National Trust bought the entire village, including the Castle Inn, houses and post office to ensure its preservation.

Disappointingly our HOWL rideout planned for the 25th Feb to visit Chiddingstone was postponed due to the poor weather forecast. However Dan Walton, Michael Keeler and John Flynn were determined to try and beat the weather and decided to still go.

First they visited the Chiddingstone Castle grounds. They say the castle is haunted, and sightings of a  previous owner’s spirit can be seen with his wife walking their dog. I can report no such nonsense. 

We also parked in the high street to marvel at the historic church and timber framed Tudor houses. Before heading off for lunch at the Orchard Cafe, Hartfield.

We’ll return on a warmer day.
