Weatherboarding
Weatherboarding is the cladding of a house consisting of long thin timber boards that overlap one another on the outside of the wall.
Traditionally timber weatherboarding was used without a finish, relying upon good air circulation and the use of 'semi-hardwoods' which would keep the boards from rotting. More recently weatherboarding has been tarred or painted; traditionally black or white due to locally occurring minerals or pigments.
Weatherboard houses may be found in most parts of the British Isles, and the style may be part of all types of traditional buildings, from cottages to windmills, shops to workshops.
River Loose and Loose Valley
The Loose Stream sometimes called the River Loose is a tributary of the River Medway notable for the number of watermills that it powered in its short length. It rises in Langley, flows through Boughton Monchelsea, Loose and enters the Medway at Tovil, near Maidstone, a total length of only 5 miles. The river valley is steep sided, and the river is fast flowing. There is much evidence of the paper and wool trades which once flourished here: the stream has been dammed in many places, resulting in many mill ponds and 13 mills.
