Come with Me to Faversham Pt. 1

Come walk with me around the picturesque town of Faversham 



Just about every house and shop is different










into the town shopping area


Town square

Built in 1570


Interesting alleyways


Preparing for some event




built 1697
The design feature on the wall is called Pargeting



Great cakes in the cake shop


and fresh meat in the butchers


Wool shop


and a pub


and craft shop
I am keeping the second hand bookshop for a separate post 





The Market place


I love the lavender planted along the pavement edge



The Parish church


interesting cushion



the old town pump
I forgot to take photographs of the art gallery where we ate lunch

I love to see half-timbered houses. We have very few in this part of the world.

Laversham looks like such an interesting old town Barbara.
I'm so glad you've continued your series of old English towns with all the history.
We enjoyed spending time visiting some when in the UK , but missed out on this one as we didn't visit Kent this time.
I have been to Sissinghurst garden in Kent on a previous trip!!!

Barbara, these photos are fantastic. What a photogenic place! I don't know how large it is, but I wish the downtowns of our smaller towns in the US were thriving like they seem to do in England. (Perhaps I'm mistaken?) Finally, after nearly 30 years of abandonment, our town's Main Street is beginning to come back to life, though. Thanks for sharing your travels and touring with us! Love your blog! Bess

Thank you Barbara, it was wonderful going through them all in large format, one after the other. So much to see.

That is a lovely town. Everything looks so neat and well kept there. I especially enjoyed the picture taken of the church. A 2nd hand book store is always a favorite place for a visit for me. I'll be looking forward to seeing the one there.

My favourite photo is the one of the church tower at the end of the narrow street. Love the perspective. Another charming English town. Delightful!
