Kent’s Strangest Tales is a book devoted to the weird and wonderful side of the Garden of England.

All the stories in this book are bizarre, fascinating, hilarious, and, most importantly, true. Perfect for Kent-dwellers and tourists alike, Kent’s Strangest Tales is a treasure trove of the hilarious, the odd and the baffling – an alternative travel guide to some of the county’s best-kept secrets that date back many thousands of years.
