Oakenden farmhouse is a medieval hall house situated at the end of Oakenden Lane, which in antiquity ran from Chiddingstone Hoath and continued on to Penshurst. This beautiful house was for many years the home of my dear aunt, Edwina and her husband John Hall. The house is still owned by her children, Penny and Brodie. This view of the house was taken in the early 1950s when animal pens were still in use in front of the house and barn.
When I first became more interested in photography Oakenden was a great subject; these two images were taken in 1979.
Edwina was a very keen gardener - the fruits of her labours are clear to see in these shots.
Finally, this view of the house taken in the snow was one of Edwina's favourites and is from her collection. I include it here in loving tribute to a remarkable lady.
