News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Ive been on a short trip in the lorry before, shes very well kept. The owner allowed me to drive his steam roller as well  :) Although not owned by Sheps, they sponsor the Sentinel.

If you like the old sheps vehicles then the brewer in Faversham is worth a visit as they have a little motor museum and loads of lovely old vehicles.

There was a Fremlins Foden steamer restored in the 1970s that was run by Whitbreads for a short while. No ide what happened to it, I think the owner was the traction engine guy who lived/lives around Comp, the oast had a traction engine on its weather vane
