Walk into Maidstone (part 2)

Hi folks,

So to continue along the river I arrived at the town centre and met up with Sue, by this time the sun had popped it's head out from behind the clouds.

Shot along river with the funny Travel Lodge building in the distance, well in keeping with Maidstone Town Centre, NOT.

Looking back along the towpath towards Aylesford, the sun is just about to come through.

St Faith's Church, up from the Maidstone Museum which by the way has a collection of old Maidstone photographs to see. Will be going back after the school children have visited in an afternoon in the quiet to have another look, well worth a visit. If you look on the Monument you will see out feathered friend......

sitting there in the sunshine.

Snowdrops in the sun, a sign in spring, we hope.

A set of flowers taken in Brenchley Gardens by the Church.

Front view on the Church.

Statue in the gardens unveiled on 1st November 2011 depicting a soldier of the 36 Engineer Regiment (search) returning to Maidstone's Invicta Barracks from Afghanistan.

Thanks for looking.

nite nite, luv Mike XX
