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

I must admit to being intrigued by the flagpole(?) sticking out of the dormer window in the Tenterden example.

I think it is a clothes line?

A very interesting book. Thanks for sharing the link.

The other building in Tenterden is a few doors away to the South/West on the same side of the road as the other one. The Old Chequers at Tonbridge is still there. The one in Penshurst graveyard is probably still there.

It looks like the building next to Laura Ashley (on Google Street View). South side of the High Street near the junction with Sayers Lane.

I had originally thought it could be the Woolpack almost opposite but clearly it isn't.

Old Cottages and Farmhouses in Kent and Sussex.
Available as a free E-Book @ http://archive.org/stream/oldcottagesfarmh00dawbrich#page/n9/mode/2up
The first 28 pages are taken up by descriptive notes and sketchs by E G Dawker. This section is followed by almost 100 black/white photographs taken by W Galsworthy Davie.
Each building is individual and full of character. I wonder how many survive today?
