|I live in the beautiful and historic town of Sandwich in Kent in the southeast of England. The River Stour lies on the edge of the town. Originally, Sandwich was one of the Cinque Ports, and we have many medieval buildings here from the original construction time. Sandwich is two miles from the coast, and although once it was a major port in its own right, this is no longer the case due to the silting up of the River Stour.|

The Butchery – 1447
The Butchery is part of Market Street and was used in the 13th century as a meat market.
Sandwich Guildhall – 1579
The Guildhall has been in the centre of Sandwich and the central-local government building since the town mayor in 1579, Edward Wood, ordered such into the Corporation Year Book. “The new building in the Corn Market shall be the Courthall of the town for ever.”
The presence of a Courthall or Guildhall is a clear sign of the status of the borough and so of the Borough of Sandwich. It awards the local government the right to hold Courts and maintain law and order.
