    Now really is the time to have a walk round Scotney Castle Garden. The trees are ablaze with their gold autumnal colours. It is picture perfect on a sunny day.

    This was a peaceful place and we had a lovely hour or so wandering amongst the ruins. There were brief boards of information - but they only gave basic information. I would have liked to have more information.

    Lots of parking available and all day charge of £6 is very reasonable but maybe being able to select a half day charge of £3 would be helpful for some families, especially in the current financial climate.The soft play area is just the right size for keeping an eye on two energetic children and at £5 per child was money well spent. Would benefit from having a baby changing area in the toilets.Plenty of space to run around afterwards or just sit and enjoy an ice cream in the shade. The pirate ship play area was a big hit with the children.

    Had a great guide, Keith Goodman, who helped us appreciate fully such an interesting place. We explored the woodland and discovered plants and animals we would have missed otherwise.

    In the graveyard of The Church of St Mary the Virgin there are five Commonwealth War Graves; four in respect of fatalities in the First World War and one in respect of a death in the Second World War. The fatalities in the First World War were Private William Henry Cook of the Queen's Own (Royal West Kent Regiment) who was 22 when he died on 9 May 1916, Lance Corporal Arthur Nicholson of the Machine Gun Corps (Motors) who was 20 when he died on 18 June 1917, Private R H Russell of the Royal Army Service Corps who was 20 when he died on 22 February 1920 and Private Arthur John Bailey who was 39 when he died on 9 December 1920. The fatality in the Second World War was Corporal Alfred Eugene Marshall who was 22 when he died on 3 April 1944. Lance Corporal Arthur Nicholson was born and resided in Lamberhurst, although his parents actually resided in Royal Tunbridge Wells, did not die overseas but actually died in the United Kingdom from, apparently, the wounds he received. Similarly, given the dates of their deaths, this, seemingly, would also have been the position in regard to Privates R H Russell and Arthur John Bailey.

    On the off chance my wife and I decided to stop at the Brown Trout for lunch. They were very busy. We were welcomed warmly but, as we had not booked a table, we could only be seated at a table in the bar area. Our drinks order was taken promptly (there's plenty of choice available, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic)and we didn't have to wait too long before our food order was taken. Despite being busy, we did not have to wait all that long for our food. We both ordered spare ribs. When our meals came they were well-presented, very tasty and cooked just right (the meat just fell off the ribs). The portion sizes were ample and good value for money. All-in-all, an excellent lunch.

    There is evidence of a church on this site in Saxon times but nothing now remains of that church. The present Church of St Mary the Virgin is mainly in the Decorated style of the 14th century and the Perpendicular style of the 15th century. The chancel is dominated by the pulpit. Behind the preacher's head is the date 1630 whilst the lower part was contrived in the 19th century. The stained glass, apart from the "Annunciation to the Shepherds" window, dates from 1870 but the stonework of the east window is in the Perpendicular style and more than likely dates from the 15th century. In the graveyard there are Commonwealth War Graves. There is the grave of William Cook, Royal West Kent Regiment (who died on 9 May 1916, aged 24) and Private Alban Bailey of the Royal Marines Light Infantry, HMS Pembroke (who died on 3 December 1920). The Church of St Mary the Virgin, Lamberhurst is a simple church but still worth a quick visit.

    Erected in 1920 and dedicated on 19 November 1920, Lamberhurst Village War Memorial is situated on School Hill, on the bank opposite to the former school where many of the fallen in World War I would have spent their boyhood days. The Memorial is a simple Celtic cross on a rough hewn plinth and raised dais. On it are listed the names of he 37 fatalities from the First World War; to which, at a later date, were added the names of the ten fatalities from the Second World War. Of those who fell in the First World War there are, at least, two sets of brothers. Lance Corporal Alban Bailey was aged 28 when he was killed in action on 11 August 1918. His brother, Private Carl Bailey, was killed in action two years earlier on 2 September 1916 when he was aged 26. Private Albert Manktelow was aged 37 when he was killed in action on 1 November 1916. His younger brother,Rifleman Frederick Manktelow, was aged 33 when he was killed in action on 16 August 1917. On the day I visited the Memorial there were a number of pebbles on it. According to an Eastern European folklore belief, stones and rocks were placed on a gravestone to prevent the deceased from rising up and escaping the body as a spirit to return to their family and cause trouble, or to torment others. It is also a Jewish custom to place a stone or a pebble on a headstone to indicate that you have visited the grave and to indicate reaspect for the deceased. Today, leaving a stone is viewed more as a tradition of remembrance. Hopefully, that is why the pebbles were placed on the Memorial, rather than following the Eastern European folklore!

    We all went to visit Bewl at the weekend and were very impressed by the range of activities there. Our grandsons loved the playgrounds and the walk along the dam.
    We had lunch at the cafe, the food was nice and the staff friendly but prices were high!

    very disappointing there was a horrid smell coming from under the table. I could almost taste the sweat in the air of moist bar tenders and the far from refreshing fragrance of cow pat. The one question i had when i left was "is that really a sandwich? Or is two pieces pieces of bread with ham in the middle?" Overall i would highly recommend not entering this place let alone blasting in it!
