Chartwell

The estate consisting of 80 acres gave Winston the peace and tranquility that he loved, and he relaxed by painting in the garden or in his studio and by transforming the grounds with new lakes, and robust brick walls built with his own hands.The Chart Well which rises on the western boundary of the site fed the existing lake and gave the estate its name.

Winston and Clementine Churchill by Oscar Nemon presented by contributors of the Churchill statue fund to mark the 5oth anniversary of his becoming Prime Minister in 1940 and the 25th anniversary of his death unveiled by her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, president of the National Trust on 13th November 1990.

Churchill was the greatest orator of his day, the greatest leader of the Second World War, the greatest statesman of his age, and the greatest Englishman of the twentieth century, perhaps of all time. The debt owed to Sir Winston Churchill by the free world remains immeasurable.

Churchill ‘s  Plaque.

Havengore was the boat that carried Sir Winston Churchill's body on his last journey (from Tower Pier to Festival Pier)  The funeral was attended by leaders of 110 nations and watched in 1965 by 350 million people worldwide.

Photo taken form the Havengore, I would like to thank a good friend Owen Palmer and  crew for a great trip on the River Medway.
