Joseph Conrad lived in the village of Bishopsbourne, Kent, from 1911 until his death in 1924. During this time, he wrote several notable works, including “Victory” and “The Shadow-Line.”
Conrad was known to be an active member of the local community, serving as a church warden and participating in various village events. He was also a member of the local literary society, where he gave talks and readings.
In addition to his literary pursuits, Conrad also worked on his garden in Bishopsbourne and was an avid collector of antique furniture. His home, Oswalds, still stands in the village and the village hall is named “Conrad Hall” in his honour.
