From the wooded depths of the Wealden forest to the fortified cliffs of the Channel coast, and from the high hills of the North Downs to the wide flats of the Romney Marsh, Kent is a county of contrast and variety. Little wonder, then, that it is a place rich with folklore and stories, steeped in legend and superstition. The inhabitants of Kent present a vibrant cast of heroes and villains, while the county’s natural landscape, quiet villages, bustling towns, stately homes and royal residences provide the tales’ unique and colourful settings.

In this book, local author Naomi Dickins brings together a collection of fascinating and entertaining tales from across the county, in which you might discover more about the origins of Kent place names and the Kentish customs of hoodening and yowling; hunt down a gang of smugglers or take a stand with the county’s defenders; bid farewell to an exiled king or discover where a native American princess is buried; meet with ancient ancestors, witches and ghosts, or just catch sight of a phantom ship.

Illustrated throughout, this book will appeal to residents, visitors and all those with connections to Kent.
