High Rocks

Cave / Rock Shelter


on a blustery but sunny day I travelled to visit High Rocks for the first time. I had know about the place since going to see British Sea Power there last year, but had never seen it up close nor in daylight.

as we approached the site I was struck by the size of the rocks, just sitting there majestically on the top of the hill, seemingly out of place with the surrounding environs.

after paying to enter ( I like to be honest about these things, and did get to see the groom from the wedding party in top hat and platform boots! ) the girlfriend and I entered through the rusty gates, then spent the next hour exploring this peaceful place.

the giant rocks cast a magical spell over this part of kent, with the potential for massive enjoyment for the smaller members of the HH crowd! there are caves and crevises, trees and plants, rope swings, climbable rocks and mostly, the peace and tranquility of an english countryside that is fast disappearing.

truly, this place is special, and I will be visiting again, next time with the kids
