Weavers House (Canterbury)

The Weavers House is an old and picturesque building in the ancient city of Canterbury in Kent.

It stands beside the East Bridge, otherwise known as the Kings Bridge, where the main street crosses one of the streams of the River Stour.

This is the spot where the earliest settlement in Canterbury stood.

There was a 12th century hall house on this site, and fragments of it remain, hidden among later additions.

In the 16th century, Huguenot refugees adapted the house to create long windows for maximum light by which to work.

The Weavers House today contains a restaurant and gift shop, and boat trips along the river start from here.
