If you are walking the Pilgrims’ Way on Sunday afternoon 7 April heading for Chilham you can stop for tea at Godmersham Park.
The PW runs through the parkland and this Sunday you can also look around the formal gardens next to the mansion known to Jane Austen.
Teas and refreshments in the Orangery are in aid of the church which has a small sculpture which may have come from Canterbury’s Thomas Becket shrine.
The Heritage Centre nearby will also be open free to garden visitors.
The garden is open 1pm to 5pm; admission £5 (in aid of nursing charities and Godmersham Church).
There will be a second opening on Sunday 16 June also as part of the National Garden Scheme .
