May 2018 Outing

Romney Marshes Outing Report 14 May 2018

Eight of us went to the Marsh. The weather forecast was not great but actually it was better than we expected. So some of us left at 6.15 am and arrived reasonably early so that we had plenty of time to photograph the iconic St Thomas a Beckett Church. We enjoyed doing the church and then ran run out of time so we weren’t able to explore the marsh.

Our next stop was St Leonards Church in Hythe with its mound of skulls. Not for everyone but most of us liked the visit. No one knows why they are there, as they date back to the thirteenth century and mostly are children and females.

Then we all met at the Seafood Restaurant at Hythe, good food and the usual friendly discussion.

After the meal we went to Saltwood Castle, a private castle not always open. The grounds were open but not the castle itself. An interesting place although not too many good photographs.

We then walked along the Royal Military Canal but we weren’t inspired so by then it was 5,30 pm and some of us headed back. Others went to Dungeness.

Another enjoyable trip. All are invited on our trips and you can spend the time on your own or spend times with others. We all do our own thing.

Best Wishes
