  1. British Pathé says

    This is probably Shoreham in Kent.

  2. British Pathé says

    Can anyone confirm this?

  3. Vicky Morgan says

    Yes it certainly is Shoreham in Kent, in the Darenth Valley between Swanley and Sevenoaks. I grew up there and recognise everything, inlcuding some of the people.

  4. Birkins says

    I am wondering if this footage relates to a period before 1959. There is someone present in the congregation who died before 1959.
    Would there be any way of double checking?
