I have forgotten the name of the one on the Lydd/New Romney road, used to be very busy when the Pilcher and Tanner quarries were in full production, stopped there many times in the earl 60's.

This question is mainly aimed at the sixty plus members. Do you recall the transport cafes of the late fifties, early sixties, Maidstone/Ashford Road, Rose of Tralee, Rose of Killarney, Chalk Cross (the Lenham one).  There was one at the top of Dunkirk Hill, near the tower, can't recall the name, the lady who owned it answered to the title of 'Aunty'.
Next to Manston air field tank farm was the Manner hut, plus many, many more, mostly interested in south east Kent area, please add to the list if you can, genuine historical reason for inquiry.
Thanking you in anticipation.
