Wander around Bearsted

Hi folks.

being Sunday and the ground being slightly boggy we decided to stay on solid ground after all that snow and after lunch Sue and I hit the road and went to Bearsted. This quaint village is on the outskirts of Maidstone in Kent.
We have been there a few times but today's mission was to try and seek out other parts of the village that we had not seen before, so we parked up by the green and set off on foot. The weather was bright and sunny to start with and all the snow had vanished.

From the back of the green we looked across at the lovely blue sky and fluffy clouds.

Looking around we noticed the oast houses which I had seen before and decided to take a closer look.

Venturing down a small path we cane upon these modern Oast Houses all together in a block and although they were new they were built to be in keeping with the village.

We then climbed the hill towards the Church high up in the village. Past this wall covered in moss and Ivy

Higher we finally got to the Holy Cross  Church which was well worth the climb only to find that it was locked.

Undeterred we approached the entrance and took this small stained glass window and picked up information about the church so that we could return when open.

final shot was of the "holy cross" on the rear of the roof.

Looking past the church there was a path into a park area, more on that in the next blog.

Thanks for dropping by and please leave a comment if you can.

nite nite, Luv Mike and Sue XXX

    oast houses blended in with the more traditional buildings.There are some lovely little villages in Kent.look forward tomorrows blog.
