Moral of that is to refresh the screen before posting!


My great grandfathers brother was the saddler and harness maker in Chilham throughout WW1, his son was a saddler in The Buffs for the duration.


Premises somewhere around The Square. Their house is the one in front of the church, facing The Square and is still known as Clements Cottage.


Coincidentally we watched an old Marple episode last night “The Moving Finger”, and the outside set was Chilham Square. Spooky.

Thank Grandarog


I started off going in the wrong direction along the A28.   Interesting family connection you have with Chilham.  I often stopped at the Woolpack for a half (Driving).  Seems ages now since lockdown.

Sorry JohnFilmer I was only half hour ahead of you.

Next one ...    shouldn't be too difficult  (Two more images and I'll have put 200 GTP images up)

You have it JohnWalker.
My Mother went to school there 1907 -1916. At the same time, she was pot washing for her eldest sister Annie (Nance) and her husband Arthur Fill who were the licensees of the Woolpack ,Chilham.Mums sister Kate was living with them as a skivvy .Uncle  Arthur was a lovely gentle man Aunt Nance was a proper old battleaxe and tyrant. She would have made the deep south plantation bosses look like pussie's
They ran a boarding house at Broadstairs for years after the Woolpack.

Sorry johnfilmer you were muttering too long. JW beat you to it.

I've been muttering at the screen for ages, I think that it is the school at Chilham.

St Mary's Primary School, Chilham.  I should have found that quicker, I took a photo of the building a few years ago!

Struggling with this one, although it seems familiar.    A Whitstable school ?
