Miscellany: Kettle Bridge Clogs are named after an old wooden bridge which used to cross the River Medway at Barming, south west of Maidstone. The bridge was demolished in the mid 1990's, and replaced with a steel girder eyesore. We can still be seen on 1st May (about 7.15 pm) each year, starting the dancing season by processing across the river and then at a nearby pub.
Since the late 1980's, we have danced at festivals and other events all over the UK and, as well, have travelled extensively abroad, including Hong Kong, Turkey, USA and Canada plus a number of European countries.
