Faversham Trip - 3rd June 2015

A trip to Faversham in Kent organised by Alan Gibbs.

Faversham is Kent's oldest market town and recorded in The Doomsday Book. Lovers of historic buildings had a feast. A major exhibition in Faversham included the Magna Carta presented to the town in 1300 and a magnificent collection of other Charters rarely on display.

Walkers did Faversham's Two Creeks Walk. It started and finished in the town centre, went past the Shepherd Neame Brewery, crossed the Victoria Swing Bridge, past quayside buildings and workshops, The Albion Taverna with its impressive views across the creek, Crab Island and the shipyard.

After lunch there was a tour of Britain's oldest brewery, Shepherd Naeme, which showed the art of brewing fine Kentish Ales.

On the way back to Woking there was a short stop at the Macknade Fine Foods, one of the country's leading food halls.

There are more pictures of the walk on the Faversham Trip page on the Sandell's web site.
