The Travelling Folk


The Travelling Folk (TTF) is a travelling folk club for West Kent and East Sussex. We don't meet regularly in one venue but gather in pre-selected pubs around the area on the first and third Thursdays of each month to enjoy ourselves and to bring folk music to those who may not have had the opportunity of experiencing a live folk session before. |

Snargate, Romney Marsh - 10 April 2011


TTF members made their annual pilgrimage to Snargate, just south of Appledore, for a session at the Red Lion - surely one of the most interesting old pubs in the country.

Those travelling from the Kent/Sussex border region were prevented from making the final leg between Appledore and Snargate by untimely road works and had to sample the beauty of alternative country lanes. Curiously, Fairfield Church, which had been the destination for the previous year’s walk, was passed en route.

As always the superb atmosphere encountered at the Red Lion, as well, of course, as the assembled company, helped to make for a very enjoyable session. The back room, which displays photos and memorabilia of the land girls (Landlady Doris was a land girl) was amply filled with singers, musicians and listeners.

The afternoon walk via Snargate Church attracted nearly a half of the participants and the sun continued to shine throughout a pleasant stroll on the Marshes.
