Darent History Takeaway

The Trust is creating an outreach programme for local school and libraries providing resources and speakers to support improved understanding of the heritage of the Darent Valley. Sections of the Otford Heritage Collection will be curated as stand-alone collections and made available on loan to schools and libraries in the Darent Valley and the neighbouring areas, with particular attention to the London Boroughs that would derive the most benefit for these resources. The materials on the Otford Palace website (particularly the forthcoming museum catalogue) will be a key part of this resource. They will be supported by printed materials and speakers drawn from the Trust’s volunteers.

If your schools wants to join the Darent History Takeaway scheme, please contact the Trust secretary secretary@otfordpalace.org

We have a number of resources – images and videos – that will tell you more about the Palace.

And a series of short videos telling stories about the Palace and the objects in the Heritage Collection:

A Young person’s reminiscence is an imaginary account of William Carter and how he became Head Groom at the Palace of Otford in 1520.

Otford Palace 1926-2026 is, as its title implies, an essay on the recent history of the Palace and a look into the future.
