  Photo showing the town wall, Sandwich, Kent, England   The old town wall was built on a raised bank surrounding the town to the south. It was built of a variety of materials but mostly wood which has since rotted away leaving just the earthen bank seen here.

It now forms a pleasant raised path following a semi- circle starting at the Quay and ending at the western end of Strand Street.
