Well that was a mighty BEAST of a weekend, took a couple of extra days to go round Kent checking out wedding venues, so I have a nice short working week now. We have finalised a venue and it is the previously mentioned Lympne Castle. It's not cheap, but it's ace, a real castle, great atmosphere and views and only ten minutes outside of Folkestone. Seems reasonable to lay on some sort of transport back into town though for our guests, a coach or something. If we invite anyone that is, we might just lord it up playing King and Queen in our own castle for the day, on our own.
Having a few probs with Gmail, I've used up my gigabyte of storage by redirecting all my popex mail at it, and that gets a tonne of spam. Google say they'll empty the trash and spam after thirty days, but they've not yet. So, sorry if I'm bouncing you, I'm deleting as fast as I can by hand, but it's not easy.
Pops, you were right, my Derelict London pubs link below does seem to have been posted on Sunday, though I wasn't near a computer all weekend... it's just because someone posted a response then, bit misleading, I will fix this up later...
