Guided Walk: Life on Rochester’s High Street during the Great War

November 9, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


On a 90-minute tour of Rochester High Street, led by local historian Geoff Rambler, hear about life on our ‘Home Front’ – experiences that were probably replicated across the country. Geoff also explores little-known Huguenot connections, including the story of Huguenot descendants Noel Chavasse VC and Christopher Chavasse, Bishop of Rochester. Find out how Christopher Chavasse was responsible for bringing The French Hospital to Rochester High Street!

Price includes a cup of tea and trench cake served at the French Hospital with an opportunity to ask further questions.

Please meet Geoff on the High Street outside the Visitor Information Centre.
