raisri003n. The same location now, captured and identified as Station Road, Lyminge, Kent by Richard Lovejoy. Mmmm . . . . no room for the "little man" in 2013. A contemporary B&W photo on Francis Frith re-assures http://www.francisfrith.com/lyminge/photos/c1955_l334008/

raisri005n. Disappointing, huh? It's what's left of Barham Mill, burnt down during restoration in 1970. And if I stepped back further down the road where the then shot was, all you'll see is a rather splendid example of a copper beech hedge. SJ

raisri008n. The party was roughly where that green tarpaulin is. Immediately above just could be that terraced row, now re-modelled. But waht swung it was the red roof building in the then which is still there but obscured by a tree, centre right now acting as a shed for Quay House, the 70ish structure in the centre. SJ

raisri009n. And this proves the above. A matching terrace behind a pub, The Ship Inn, on Conyer Road. This means the camera crew made a big effort to haul equipment all around from the north side of Swale marina to the east side. Or hailed passing boat. SJ
