Sevenoaks, 21 miles SE of Charing Cross Station and only a 30 minute ride from where I am staying, is a small town of 18,000 that we’d think of as a suburb of the larger city of London. As I said in my earlier post, it is also home to the 1000 acre Knole Park and house.
Sevenoaks was first mentioned when it became a market town in the 13th century and every Saturday is still market day. There are many interesting shops located on and around the High Street. My last stop, of course, was the book store where I picked up a few titles I had been looking for to add to my history of the Sackville family.
There is a lot more to see here. Churches:
