A talk on local history will be held on Monday, April 23 at Reliance Restaurant, Queen Street.

As part of a series of talks called ‘Local History and Chips’, speaker and local historian Christoph Bull will be giving a taster of the great unknown history and folklore of the local area

The talk covers the villages around Dartford through to Gravesham, telling the story of quiet rural retreats and new sprawling communities.

It covers the Rockers who used cafes in West Kingsdown, how railways transformed villages, the story of the Screaming Skull of Fawkham, the ghostly nun of Southfleet and the man who transformed the boundaries of Romania and Hungary – who lived in one of these villages.

In addition there will be a supper in the award winning restaurant.

The event will start at 6pm, and the cost of the evening including the food is £15.

To book, call Reliance Restaurant on 01474 533593.
