The Kent Poems - Dean Fraser (2021)
You are invited to embark on a journey poetically exploring the beauty and diversity of The Garden of England County. Learn of love being found hop-picking in the 1930’s, explore every part of the White Cliffs and spend a tranquil summer’s day sat on a bench in St Margret’s Bay, visit Martello Towers and Lighthouses, enjoy literary encounters with Christopher Marlow and Charles Dickens, find artistic heroes Vincent Van Gogh and JMW Turner, take lunch in Sandwich, admire civil engineering in Dartford, walk the coastal paths of Kent, feel at home in Bridge, experience Folkestone on the wildest of days and enjoying crossing The Channel in the early 2000’s on the now obsolete Sea Cat. Exploring the rich history, famous or some of the not so famous Kentish sons and daughters, and getting beyond only the tourist spots to feel the deep into the soul of just what makes Kent uniquely Kent! 70 pages.
