Fordwich is a pretty village in Kent, 2 miles from Canterbury.

During the Middle Ages, it was the port for Canterbury and a borough in its own right. It was here that the Caen stone for Canterbury Cathedral was landed.

St. Mary`s Church is partly Norman, and contains an ancient tomb claimed to be the one in which St. Augustine was buried.

The pretty timber framed 16th century Town Hall, with its red roof, is the smallest in England, and contains an old ducking stool.
