Peter’s favourite item at the Museum is the man trap. Man traps were set in buildings to stop trespassing. It became illegal to use the traps in 1827 along with spring guns, and other engines calculated to destroy human life.

This is a fabulous photo of R and J Bennett and Co in West Cross who were omnibus proprietors and ran services between Tenterden, Headcorn, Maidstone, Rye and Hawkhurst. The yard is now Bennett Mews.

In 1974, 250 children at Tenterden Junior School made this amazing tapestry depicting the history of the town. It included 4 inch high self portraits of the children.

Today’s first colour is orange. Fun fact: artists in Ancient Egypt used an orange mineral called realgar in tomb paintings. It wasn’t until the 1700’s that the same word was used for fruit &colour. Follow this link to find Spikes orange activity sheet.
