Caption for Farningham, The Bridge And Lion Hotel C1955

Farningham is just a short distance from Eynsford, set at another pretty crossing of the Darent between ridges of chalk hills. Known at the time of Domesday as Ferlingeham, it was once a significant market centre, and in later centuries had important paper mills. During the 18th century the Lion Hotel was a stagecoach stop on the way to and from London. Since the 1920s, the village has been bypassed by the A20.

My Home, 2012

Me and my partner, Michael, moved in to number 1 Lion Cottages in March 2012. We love the house and its history, the village is quaint and idyllic, a perfect setting. Michael is 6 foot tall and cannot stand up in all areas of the house, but this adds to the character, a small sacrifice to make.

My Grandma And Grandpa

I remember every Sunday while I was growing up, we (my family) would go to visit my grandparents. One of my favourite dinners they would cook for us was leg of lamb, yorkshire pudding, and all the trimmings to go with it. I always looked forward to seeing my grandparents. The garden they had was in teers and the ...Read full memory
