|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.|

Sandwich Quay Recreation Walk
The Quay is now a landscaped park and play area. The reclaimed space here wasn’t always so green and pleasant. This was once the site of a shipbuilder’s yard, a blacksmith’s forge, and by 1839, the Sandwich Corporation Gas Works.
Way into Sandwich through New Gate built in 1451
Street leading to the ‘Water Loop Sluice Gate’ near to the Butts. One of the many sluice gates introduced and installed to the town by Dutch Water Engineers in the 15th century.
