The 300,000 year old Swanscombe Skull was found close to the River Darent .The river and its valley were also an important part of Roman Kent evidenced by the villa at Lullingstone and a further 12 sites in the valley.Adding to the natural beauty of the Darenth valley(note different spelling due to a mistake by a cartographer on an 1804 map!)in the summer are the extensive lavender fields of Castle Farm between Otford and Shoreham.The farm is the largest producer of lavender oil in the UK and along with the 3 remarkable churches we will be visiting is well worth a trip.
