I have been going for some years for solitary retreats and creative stays and appreciate the healing chapels and Angelic connections.
Ruth and I went this time, armed with loads of water soluble media and my cameras. I enjoyed drawing with the water soluble crayons, pens, and coloured Inktense crayons.
Aylesford Priory, and I was drawn to all the ancient trees around the site including a huge plane tree and fir at the back of the Priory. Their old barn, now a cafe and shop, was being re thatched, interesting to watch the craftsmen at work.
We came away with some pottery from the Aylesford Pottery founded by David Leach in the 1950's
