I have lived in Chestfield for 50 years and never been there. I went with some friends from Rotary so glad I went so much to see

I was surprised how much there was to see for a small local museum. We'd been about 10 years ago, but I'd forgotten what was on display. A good mix of history, ranging from Peter Cushing memorabilia, the 2nd world war, Whitstable souvenirs, diving gear,...More
