The Ghost of Otford Past


Some people say they can hear an eerie whistle, whenever they visit the slope at the Otford northern site. Some say they can feel a presence, an icy feeling like something fast is approaching them, but as they spin around....NOTHING! Some say it's just the breeze but I say it's the spirit of Jart 1 protecting its final resting place amongst the trees. People claim to have seen the 'Guardian of the Jart', a stag of immense anger that should be avoided by swiftly eating an apple pie with cream (and ice cream). I think it was more likely a long-bearded, banjo-toting, Otford local looking for his shack.

Whatever YOU believe know this, some things are better left to nature, top land whenever possible and watch out!, Tom is coming in from the road.

I actually think its being used as a clothes line by the locals at the bottom of the hill.

Either a clothes line, or a banjo rack.

I must disagree Matt. The Jart be not Dead.
That carbon fibre composite will out live most of us.!
Its just laying down having a rest - tired from ripping apart all those air molecules.
It could be discovered in 20 years time and they'd be wondering who flew this
last month.

I feel sorry for the discoverer for they will suffer the 'curse of the PNF' and the 'Wrath of the Guardian'!

So much for that early in week Friday prediction of SE for Otford
Looks like it won't be there till almost dark and then there could be a bit of lightning and thunder thrown in for good measure. Looks like all those non-Otford places may get a look in for the NE'er.

Nup, we ran for cover, but we had plenty of satisfactory laps before it got nasty. You should'a been there.

Anyone heard more about Sundays Jart action?
