In early September Doug Harman and myself went along to Elvey farm to shoot a selection of images in order for us to use them as a potential partner in our new Capture and Create brand. Watch this space I will tell you more shortly!
Elvey Farm dates from 1496 and includes a collection of stables and outbuildings dating from the 16th to 18th centuries, since converted into a very beautiful and romantic hotel and restaurant.
Herewith a selection of the images shot to give you a taste for this wonderful location in the idyllic rural heart of the Kentish countryside, near the well known village of Pluckley.
The villages official status as the most haunted village in Britain has drawn many TV and radio series there, in particular for it’s filming between 1991 and 1993 of the famous “Darling Buds of May” TV series starring Catherine Zeta Jones and David Jason. An episode of the Syfy television series Ghost Hunters International, titled Haunted Village, featuring The Black Horse Inn, Elvey Farm, and The Screaming Woods, was also broadcast on 30 January 2008.
The Domesday Book also has references to Pluckley in it, at which time it was a more significant settlement than the now much larger and commercial town of Ashford.
