- The Forge
Every good story needs a villain and in That Bloody Woman it's our then PM, Richard John Seddon, played expertly by Geoffrey Dolan.
As it happens, Seddon has family ties to Addington. His daughter was married to the Vicar of St Mary's, and on visits he'd take his grandchildren for rides around Church Square in his carriage.
The belfry in the square is a memorial to Seddon which was erected in 1907 in response to his wish, and financial contribution, to have "some bells for ringing".
It will come as no surprise that in a Parish meeting in 1892 the women present expressed themselves against women's suffrage.
