Canterbury’s position as one of England’s most historic cities is well known. Less well known but just as historic is the tiny town of Fordwich, just 3 miles from Canterbury and slap bang on the Stour River, the Stour Valley Way and the old pilgrim Way of St Augustine. Lovely St Mary’s Church, the miniature Town Hall and the town’s two pubs are some of the heritage gems of the town, all well worth exploring as part of this pleasant circular walk.
