Out of my front door, I have open countryside for miles around. Except for the M20 and HS1 train line 500 yards away...
Coincidentally I'm in Gravesend on Friday. Staying over at that Best Western (Manor Hotel) en-route to seeing one of my clients down there (on Medway City Estate). Kent is really pretty beautiful on the whole. Do they still call it "the garden of England"
