A visit to East Malling, via Victoria Station…

After buying the return ticket to East Malling, I had maybe 40 minutes wait for the Ashford International train, so The Iron Duke on the station concourse beckoned, and this is the view out of a window, of the Apollo Victoria, where Wicked is currently playing….

East Malling villlage, from Mill Street, with the King and Queen pub on the left, and the tower of St. James’ Church visible at the end of Church Walk.

Further along Mill Street, on the left, is Upper Mill, with these Oast Houses, now converted to homes, but formerly with a practical use as hop-drying kilns, and a feature of some Kentish and Sussex landscapes.

    It would be quite cool to live in an Oast House, but hard to furnish round rooms I would think!

  2. Yes, I guess it would be an interesting challenge, although it’s one that I imagine plenty of folk have undertaken, as there are quite a number of these converted Oast Houses in Kent and Sussex. Incidentally, I’ve a cousin living in the Medway valley in Kent who rents a converted chapel, complete with font! Apparently, she’s not allowed to remove or alter the font, but I suppose it’s an interesting feature to chat about when she has visitors ;).
