About this title

Synopsis:

Kent’s Strangest Tales is a book devoted to the weird and wonderful side of the Garden of England. Home to historically rich towns such as Canterbury, Margate, and Ramsgate, Kent is a county with more strangeness than you can shake a strange-shaped stick at. From Chaucer's legendary tales of debauchery and naughtiness to Mick and Keef’s very first meeting on a rocking ’n’ rolling Dartford train, Kent has it all—coast, ghosts, castles, treasures, pirates, Britain’s oldest highway, and, lest we forget, the old lady who tricked the Luftwaffe. All the stories in this book are bizarre, fascinating, hilarious, and, most importantly, true. Perfect for Kent-dwellers and tourists alike, Kent’s Strangest Tales is a treasure trove of the hilarious, the odd, and the baffling—an alternative travel guide to some of the county’s best-kept secrets that date back many thousands of years. Read on, if you dare!
