CAR PARKING

 

Although our friends at The George and Dragon are happy to allow people free use of their car park, as long as they visit the premises during their time in Fordwich, and there is limited parking alongside the Town Hall we have made alternative provisions for our visitors to park.

 

If required parking is available in Marlowe Meadows. The postcode for the parking area is CT2 0BF.

 

Marlowe Meadows is a turning off of Fordwich Road – if approaching from Sturry it is the 2nd left turn and, if approaching from Canterbury/Fordwich it is the 2nd right turn after the River Bridge.

 

Please park towards the end of the road on the grass outside Brett Specialised Aggregates and take a stroll back to us – using the directions on this site. This will take you approximately 10 minutes.

Fordwich is a beautiful and ancient port on the River Great Stour, two miles downstream from the City of Canterbury in Kent.

 

Although Fordwich has never boasted more than a few hundred inhabitants its right to style itself a town dates from 1184, when King Henry II granted it a Merchant Gild Charter reflecting its importance as the de facto port for Canterbury.

 

In the Domesday Book, it was described as a small burgh, one of only seven burghs in Kent. Since the 13th century Fordwich has been involved with the Cinque Ports through its geographical and institutional links with Sandwich.
