Meopham Historical Society Outing (02/04/2008)

Sandwich (Page 2/2): The Town Walk

After a lunch break, when a few of us made for the nearest pub, we met up again at the Guildhall and split into groups of 12 for a guided tour of the town by members of the Sandwich Historical Society. We have learnt that there are still over 200 timber frame buildings in the town and the original medieval layout still exists. This means that the streets are narrow and so are the pavements, a problem when walking round on the tour. However, our guide gave us an interesting insight into the history and buildings. There was just time for a quick tea and cake at the Salutation tearooms before meeting up with our coach for the journey home. A very interesting and informative day out.
