In Passing [Aug. 4th, 2013|01:51 pm]
Tony Grist
Is it just us or is there something seriously amiss with Google?

We were in Tenterden yesterday afternoon- such a handsome town! There must be a reason for the high street being so broad. I'll look it up later when Google comes back.

I've just started Shirley. The rector of a West Yorkshire village has dispatched his curate- armed with pistols and shillelagh- to defend the local mill against frame breakers- which is totally mad and Bronte knows it. This is Jane Austen's period but Bronte is choosing to write about all the things Austen left out.

The reason for Tenterden's wide High Street is quite simple- it was the main market town for the region and grew fat on the wool trade.
