This was a last minute decision as our other plans were called off due to it pissing down! Lots of the reports on here say that this place has a horrible feel to it, but I didn't get that at all. The pig cages made me a bit sad though... poor piggies.

History:
Buckston Browne Farm was a research establishment for the Royal College of Surgeons from the 1930's up to the 1990's when it closed.

It gets its name from Sir George Buckston Browne, who was a British doctor. In 1927 he bought Charles Darwin's former home Down House, which is around the corner, and founded the Buckston Browne Research Farm in Downe, Kent, in 1931.

In the 1980s, the farm caused controversy because of its use of vivisection techniques, and in August 1984 it was raided by anti-vivisection activists.
