Description


Renowned as the 'Garden of England', Kent is as famous for its blossom and orchards as it is for its rich and diverse heritage. From the moment the Romans landed on our southern shores, Kent's landscape was carved out with solid roads, military settlements, and major towns. The county can now boast two thousand years of living history, with at least some fragment surviving from every period of its development. This book explores 30 of West Kent's Historic monuments, some well known, others not, but all open to the public at certain times throughout the year. Each article comprises a colour photograph, an historical overview, and an information panel containing opening times, grid reference, address, telephone number, and web site details (where applicable)
