You have it Diapason  :) .   


(I was expecting Stewie to get it first as he was in Chiddingstone with his wife earlier in the year and he posted a guess the place of the castle.)


Over to you Diapason ...

Not Tenterden Stuartwaters - Head North West a good few miles.  I believe it's the High Weald area.


One of our active members was within a stones throw of this church earlier in the year ;)

I'll hazard a guess and say St Mildred's church in Tenterden.

I'm not going to quibble about front or rear, it's the south-eastern corner tower of Cooling Castle. Correctly mentioned that it was built for the Cobham family in the last quarter of the fourteenth-century as a defence of the southern side of the Thames Estuary. Then the marshes to the north were not so well developed and an open water course extended from the Estuary up to the Castle.


Masonry has fallen from the eastern tower of the main south gate, but this is in the process of being restored at the moment.


You have it John Walker
