Our friends, Robert and Susan, kindly invited us to stay with them in their beautiful home in Sandwich in Kent. Monty came and enjoyed a long walk on the beach.
Sandwich is a town and civil parish in the Dover District of Kent, south-east England. It lies on the River Stour and has a population of 4,985.
Sandwich was one of the Cinque Ports and still has many original medieval buildings, including several listed public houses and gates in the old town walls, churches, almshouses and the White Mill. While once a major port, it is now two miles from the sea due to the disappearance of the Wantsum Channel. Its historic centre has been preserved.
Sandwich Bay is home to nature reserves.
Sandwich in Kent also gave its name to the food by way of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, and the word sandwich is now found in several languages.
