Barham Downs

History Society







Our July meeting will be on Monday 9th July.

This will be another of Andy Linklater's walks - this time it is around the key parts of Kingston.

We shall start from The Black Robin. The pub has kindly agreed to let us use their field opposite the pub for parking.

Could all interested please arrange to get to the pub from 7.00 pm to allow Andy to start at 7.15 pm prompt. Anyone who would like a lift should contact David Wood (832430 / and he will try to arrange matters.

Bearing in mind the weather during our Folkestone walk last year, this should guarantee the end of the drought.

This marks the end of our 2017/2018 season and the committee would like to thank you all for supporting the society. Do let us know of any topic or aspect you would like us to investigate for future meetings and activities. We have deliberately not laid down a fixed programme at the start of the season, as most societies do, to give us the flexibility to take advantage of unexpected opportunities and meet our members ongoing suggestions and requirements

We commence the 2018/2019 season on Monday 10th September at Barham Village Hall. Following our usual brief AGM we are hoping to show a series of short films.  Details will be confirmed in our September update.

If anyone has photos, or other documents or mementos of the area and are prepared to allow us to copy/photograph them for any talks or for our archive in general, please contact our archivist John Reynolds (830384 / or David Wood (832430 /
