A little gem on the Edge of Romney Marsh

On impulse today we went to an Aeronautical jumble - the reason we had never been to one before.  It was held at BRENZETT MUSEUM and we found the jumble to be very disappointing, we arrived at one thirty and the stalls (I seriously doubt that there ever 150 of them) that were still there were packing up.  We were charged full price to get in to the jumble but the tickets also allowed entry to the museum and we decided to visit the museum so as not to make it a wasted journey. 
This was worth the drive, only open at weekends between April and October, it was really interesting and somewhere I would be happy to visit again.

  My favourite bits not in any order:-
 the pilot who flipped doodlebugs off course; finding out where the doodlebugs hit in Kent, surprisingly not that many in Thanet; how many doodlebugs
 never made it to the Kent coast;
the home front exhibit;
the personal items, cards, etc; the dambuster bomb; maps of the grass airfields; tales of heroes and bravery. 
 Pretty much all of it.  
It felt as though every turn there was more and more.

 Every inch of the museum is full of interest.
