Broad bean planting time?

I used to live in Devon. Obeying the locals I made sure my broad beans were planted on Boxing day. I have now moved to Margate, Kent. We are five mins walking distance from the sea so it can never get too cold here. Should I plant my broad beans on Boxing day here?

Up here in the 'grim north' most people plant by November - its s cold/dark December/January there is not much chance of anything growin outside!
Are you sowing or planting? Either way I'd protect with a cloche i case things get very cold/wet - a deep bed drains best when its reall wet
