Andy Cooper what a small world we live in, I was living in East Grinstead at the time! I was young, but have always remembered the horrendous noise from outside, and seeing the massive oak tree swaying (!) outside our house! A few of our trees had to be cut the next day as they were leaning over the drive.
I loved reading the different memories on the Kent website. Ed, how did the ferry get out of that predicament?!
