Kent's Strangest Tales : Extraordinary But True Stories, Paperback

Kent's Strangest Tales : Extraordinary But True Stories Paperback



Following on from the bestselling Strangest title London's Strangest Tales comes Kent's Strangest Tales - a book devoted to the weird and wonderful side of the home county many people believe is the 'The Garden of England'.

Located on the bottom of the Old Man of England's bottom, Kent is a county with more strangeness than you can shake a strange-shaped stick at.

Home to historically-rich towns such as Canterbury, Rochester, Maidstone and Ramsgate, Kent can lay claim to some very strange goings-on indeed.

From Chaucer's legendary tales of debauchery and naughtiness to Mick and Keef's very first meeting on a rocking 'n' rolling Dartford train.

Kent has it all - coast, ghosts, castles, treasures, pirates, Britain's oldest highway and, lest could we forget, the old lady who tricked the Luftwaffe.

Kent's Strangest Tales is a treasure trove of the hilarious, the odd and the baffling - an alternative travel guide to some of the county's best-kept secrets that date back many thousands of years.

Read on, if you dare! You have been warned.
