I don’t know anything about Orpington (apart from the fact it has a breed of chicken named after it!) and despite having lived just half an hour away for the first 22 years of my life I don’t think I’ve visited before… and I still haven’t because this Waterstones is on an out-of-town open shopping complex (is it the only Waterstones of its type, I wonder? Time will tell!), so we didn’t get to see the town centre.

I wonder if it was a former Borders store?
And nope its not the only one – https://www.google.co.uk/maps/uv?hl=en&pb=!1s0x4887b905ae511e23:0xf3681124f3bd79f4!2m22!2m2!1i80!2i80!3m1!2i20!16m16!1b1!2m2!1m1!1e1!2m2!1m1!1e3!2m2!1m1!1e5!2m2!1m1!1e4!2m2!1m1!1e6!3m1!7e115!4s/maps/place/waterstones%2Bfort%2Bkinnairdemail@example.com,-3.1062551,3a,75y,286.36h,90t/data%3D*213m4*211e1*213m2*211seNxdaA5WLY-Uo5Jxt3KVBQ*212e0*214m2*213m1*211s0x4887b905ae511e23:0xf3681124f3bd79f4!5swaterstones+fort+kinnaird+-+Google+Search&imagekey=!1e2!2seNxdaA5WLY-Uo5Jxt3KVBQ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj86K3Rgc_cAhVDmbQKHRhXC30Qpx8wCnoECAoQDg
It can’t have been Borders as they ended in 2009 and this is a new development. 🙂
Interesting re: the Edinburgh out-of-town branch. Not sure when we’ll get to Scotland but I am looking forward to seeing it when we do. 🙂
