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.
