Although hard to believe, the village of Appledore was once a coastal town and port with river access inland. The last ship to be built here was in 1446. By the 16th century, Appledore was an inland town, with river access to Rye. Here, the smugglers had a field day stashing their contraband in the cellars and tunnels. The Military Canal was built in the early 1800s to protect against Napoleonic invasion and hinder the smugglers on the Romney Marshes. Take a stroll along its banks, and delve into the history of this area.
The medieval market town of Rye, with its cobbled streets, makes for a great day out, as does Tenterden, which is known as “The Jewel of the Weald” where you can indulge in afternoon tea.
