Where to Find Us

The DDHG has a room at the rear of the Methodist Church in the High Street, Dymchurch. The entrance is in Chapel Road.   


Meetings are held every two months. They are either a talk by a visiting speaker, which take place on a Thursday evening at 7.30pm at the Methodist Church, Dymchurch, or a visit.


We are very interested in hearing from people who have photographs, documents and stories we can copy and keep safely in our records.
