Chilham Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 5 photos
If you are like us, following the A 252, that changes into the A20, then you will pass through the village of Lenham.
I happened to see this little, old building with a historic sign beside it.
Built in the early 19th century, it was used as the local gaol to lock up the late night reveller's.
Sometime after World War 1, it was used as mortuary for people who had died in accident's, and also stranger's that happened to die in the Village. World War II, it was used as an air raid shelter, so this building has quite a history.
