The Friends’ outing to the Museum of Kent Life started with a beautiful sunny day and a very enjoyable coach ride to Maidstone town centre. There we boarded the river boat Kentish Lady for a cruise on the river Medway to Arlington Lock and the museum, with a running commentary on all the sites along the river bank.  

The museum was really interesting, with hop-pickers’ houses, oast houses and other buildings displaying everything the way it used to be in the olden days.  

There was even piglet racing!
