are the benefits?
Discovering part of the nation’s history with like-minded
people, and enjoying the beauty of Kent's countryside to name but two.
Often, towers, rooms (or entire buildings) not normally open to
the general public are opened specially for us to explore.
I have to be an expert to come along?
No - everyone is welcome.
I take photographs?
Yes – many people do.
I ask questions?
much does it cost?
Each afternoon’s programme of visits costs only £5 including
do I pay?
Payment is made by cash on the day.
do I get there?
We operate on the basis that most people will have their own
transport, as many of these buildings are in fairly remote places.
However, do let us know if this is likely to be a problem –
there is a good chance someone else will be travelling in the same
direction. Some churches
are accessible by public transport.
it matter if I have small children with me?
No problem, children have come along to meetings before and are
welcome, as long as they are supervised by a responsible adult;
under-18s are free. (Please note that some buildings may be unsuitable
for very young children). We
plan to make children’s activity sheets available in the near
do anything else?
Most years, we hold a Study Day with a programme of talks and
practical activities based on a particular theme.
I have to be a member of the Kent Archaeological Society to join in?
No, membership is not required, although of course we would
encourage you to join!
