Dickon mentioned All Saints' Maidstone and Rochester Cathedral in his
posting on this subject.   Don't forget Frittenden, Tunbridge Wells and
Edenbridge, not to mention St Mary Cray if we're going to talk about good G
& J rings in the county.   Bromley Common, Hunton and the newish eight at
Bickley are rather good too.   


Along with Chatham, there are some rather fine old style rings too: Chislet,
Chartham, Aldington, Ashford, Goudhurst, Lenham .come to think about it Mr
Pickford, I think your assertion is wrong: apart from counties such as
Yorkshire, Devon and others where there is a disproportionate number of
modern rings (not all of them good), Kent holds its head up rather well
among other counties .but then, I am VERY biased!

Probably because Hertfordshire is worse.
Sussex is on a par with Essex Bedfordshire and a lot of other rather
mixed counties. Personally I think Kent has enough really good rings to
lift it out of the bottom order. No one has mentioned Maidstone or
Wrotham yet, Chatham sound good if rather tough, amazing for Warner,
probably there best effort. Lydd are a superb ring, 1926 g&j!, Sevenoaks
are nice.
