A Memory of Brenchley

My grandparents lived in Brenchley for many years, and all our summer holidays in the 1950s and 1960s were spent there. We lived in London so I really looked forward to the summer! My grandparents lived near Castle Hill, and on the last evening of the holiday we all used to go to the Castle pub, my brother and I sat outside and drank lemonade and packets of crisps. Sometimes my father would go and watch the cricket, my grandparents' cottage was opposite the field! My brother and I went back for a visit 2 years ago, we stayed at the Bull, it was like going back in time.
