Wherever you’re situated in the regions that AquAid South Kent service, it’s sure to be an area of great interest, historically or otherwise:
Canterbury – The Canterbury trot was the name given to the way pilgrims rode their horses to get to the city before the night-time curfew. That was the origin of the verb ‘to canter’.
Hastings is one of the medieval Cinque Ports. It has the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe. The beach is called Stade which is a Saxon term meaning landing place.
The town is most famous for 1066 – the Castle was built by William the Conqueror. Its ruins are at the top of the West Hill and the steepest funicular railway in Britain takes passengers from the Old Town up the hill to the Castle.
Margate – In the 1700s, bathing in the sea and drinking seawater became a fashionable cure for all sorts of diseases. From the Georgian period onwards, visitors from London began flocking to resorts like Margate for the seawater cure and increasingly as a place to socialise. Margate has built a reputation as a place for bathing in the sea – both for health and pleasure.
Ramsgate was a main embarkation port from the UK during the Napoleonic Wars. On one occasion 40,000 troops embarked from the town. During World War Two, Ramsgate was a major contributor towards the rescue of the troops from the Dunkirk Beaches.
The first international hover port in the world was at Pegwell Bay in Ramsgate.
Sandwich has had at least eight windmills over the centuries, the earliest reference to a mill being dated 1608. The White Mill is the only survivor. It was built in 1760 and worked by wind until 1929, then by engine until 1957. Today it has been restored and is a heritage and folk museum.
