Despite being really very tiny, Fordwich is not a village, but instead holds the title of Britain’s smallest town. No more than a few hundred people have ever lived there, but its right to call itself a town dates from a royal charter in 1184 when it was an important river port for Canterbury.
Although later the River Stour gradually silted up, some river trade continued until the mid-19th century.
Fordwich has always been famous for its fishing, especially for a fish named the Fordwich trout.
The Church of St Mary the Virgin at Fordwich is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust.
Visitors can see a strange carved stone, which dates from 1100. The stone is 1.7m long and is thought to have been a shrine for the body parts of a saint.
