Wake Up (Again) Dymchurch!

Tonight (8/10) BBC2 repeated the Dad's Army episode 'Wake Up, Walmington'.

Dymchurch notched up no less than three references:

  1. Dymchurch Home Guard Platoon is mentioned not-quite-in-dispatches. And not favourably. (But it is a comedy.)

  2. Dymchurch Police phone through a report of suspicious characters. (Without being seen or heard.)

  3. The Six Bells pub is located 'about six miles away, off the Dymchurch Road'. (The A259?)

Walmington-on-Sea is located 'about twenty miles from Dover' and is obviously coastal. That puts it between Whitstable and Rye. Not very precise, but near enough to Dymchurch.

Syn 2014 photos: Evensong

The fabulous Bloco Fogo samba band.

Also: general pictures, the Trial at The Bowery,
the Art Display and the Dymchurch Mummers.

And I've found some more 'Return of Dr Syn' photos

Dymchurch in the National News - and the Countryfile smugglers feature.


Now Eastbourne has followed Hastings in losing it's pier,
hopefully temporarily, Deal remains the local example.

What you’ll find here:

Information on the next Day of Syn, a little about the Day of Syn Society and a roster of the characters featured in the seven Doctor Syn books. (Well, four of them so far.)

The Night Riders, excise men, Dragoons and . . . carpenters; all reside within!

Eventually I will complete the character information, include daguerreotypes of the events at Dymchurch and details of the film and television versions of the books.

Hey, I’ve won an award!
