Biddenden winery, Steam Train and Bodiam Castle [Oct. 21st, 2014|05:50 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]

Sunday 12 October (2)

 After Teapot Island we had a little stop at Biddenden winery, to sample and buy some local wines ( and a very tasty spiced cider) http://www.biddendenvineyards.com/
At 1 o’clock I had booked a ploughman lunch on the Kent & East Sussex Railway .
Such a lovely way to travel, I haven’t been on steam train for a few years (last time I think was the Victorian event at Bluebells railway). http://www.kesr.org.uk/
 This one goes all the way to Bodiam Castle and back so we went to visit it (well revisit for us as we went last year but as we are members and such a sweet little one )

We were lucky with the weather as it only started to rain as we finish visiting it, then it really got cold and wet…the return journey was a bit less fun…so so cold…and well impossible to see through the windows with all that rainfall… we said our goodbye to Simon parents  as we went onto Hever Castle

The cavell carriage
The Cavell Van is the prototype Parcels and Miscellaneous Van (US: boxcar) built by the South Eastern and Chatham Railway in 1919. It is so named because it was the van which carried the body of Edith Cavell when it was repatriated to the United Kingdom following the end of the First World War. The van also carried the bodies of Charles Fryatt and The Unknown Warrior.
