Faversham: a Walk About Town

We spent a warm day in Faversham exploring the town and getting some exercise.  First:  the shops.

Faversham is a market town, and the market is a fun, colorful, bustling experience.

Heselden Hats and General Miscellany was a fun shop:  buttons, ribbons, hats, this-n-that.  Flora and I had fun browsing.

The very famous Shepherd Neame brewery is located in Faversham.  We walked by several times, and since we were there on a Tuesday, malting day, the smells were amazing.

There are lots of excellent pubs in Faversham!  Most of them, of course, are loyal to Shepherd Neame Brewery.
