Strand Street, Sandwich, Kent, England, Great Britain
Sandwich, Kent.

Sandwich is a hidden gem. Situated mid-way between Margate and Dover near the coast it seems to be little known but is just the sort of quaint little town that tourists would love!

This narrow, winding road is one of Sandwich's main thoroughfares, Strand Street. This is the main road to and from Canterbury but, generally, there is not a lot of traffic in the town. Sandwich is a maze of narrow little streets and alleys which are always fascinating. We stayed at the The Kings Arms Hotel for our stay in 2010.

The Swing Bridge and Barbican, Sandwich, Kent, England, Great Britain
Sandwich, Kent.

At the eastern end of Strand Street you will find the road to Ramsgate leading out through the arch of the Barbican and across this swing bridge. Part of the mechanism as visible at the bottom of the picture below the bridge. This view is looking from the northern side of the River Stour back towards the town.

The river is also known as the Great Stour and is the same river that runs through Canterbury 12 miles to the west.

The 14th Century Barbican, Sandwich, Kent, England, Great Britain
Sandwich, Kent.

Looking through the archway of the Barbican along High Street past the junction with Strand Street, on the right, showing some of the timber-framed buildings which are sprinkled so liberally across the town.

The Barbican, built in the 14th century, was one of the gates in the old town wall.
