Merrily to Frendsbury – A History of the Parish of Frindsbury
The ancient Parish of Frindsbury transcends the city boundary and for centuries part of it lay within the City and Liberty of Rochester. Thus the histories of city and parish are intertwined and in this compact volume the story of the Parish unfolds from the pen of long-time resident Derek Barnard. Frindsbury could be described as a microcosm of Kent itself, with so many of the county’s distinctive characteristics and features represented there – from farming to hop growing, chalk quarrying to fishing and ship building. It is a must both for the serious researcher and for those with a passing interest in this fascinating area.
