Thomas Paine’s other house

Elsewhere (see posts below) I’ve detailed Lewes’ fascination with all things Tom Paine. I’d failed to notice that Paine’s residence in Sandwich, Kent, has not merely been opened for public viewing but has been renovated as a self-catering holiday let. With wifi access.

As with Paine’s time in Lewes, his stay in Sandwich was not marked by much radical activity, as he was pre-occupied with running a stay-making business that he abandoned after his first wife’s death.
