Thornham town

     This is a tour of the outskirts of the town that gives the narrow gauge railway its name. Thornham is a historic walled, market town somewhere on the north coast of Kent, with trade links to both the near by Canterbury and, the slightly more distant, London. 

      Thornham is a bustling town, with long stretches of its historic wall still standing, as seen here near the station. Access to this side of the town is therefore difficult for cars, but there are bigger gaps in the wall elsewhere, that have allowed for bigger roads to be built.

       The petrol station, come car dealership, is doing well up against the town wall.

       The market has grown so large, in Thornham, that it has spread outside the town walls, onto the side streets. Although, a few of the locals has expressed views that they prefer having a much more local market outside their door, rather than having to walk all the way into town.

       Who is that on the mobile phone in the 1960's?
