Looking from the west, to this Roman construction (St. Mary.) Originally, the towers had wooden spires on top of them.
Looking from the east. From this angle you can get some sort of idea of the original plot.
Peeping back from some way along the sea wall.
A view eastwards toward the north-east tip of Kent.
The parish Church of St. Nicholas at Wade. As the land is pretty flat around here, this can be seen for miles around.
The interior of this magnificent Church. It has an old stairway inside the south porch leading to a room above it. All "mod cons" have been added here recently, including a toilet!
Two pubs, just across the road from each other. This reminds me a bit of the British sitcom "Never the twain" (Donald Sinden and Windsor Davies - remember it!!)
A timbered cottage on the way out of St. Nicholas at Wade.
A very English thing. The Field placement somewhat eccentric though? Gully and someone between silly point and silly mid off on the off-side. No one else in the area (apart from the keeper!!!)
Looking over the last of this years rapeseed blossom toward a windmill. There has been a tarmac footpath all the way from St. Nicholas at Wade. This is the best part of a mile away from the Town however! There must be some recent history behind it?
Crossing the river Wantsum.
The "Hog and Donkey", one of Kents most famous pubs. A pretty remote place. I must admit, if I were not driving back to London, I could have been tempted in for a "session"!!
Some fine vintage cars outside the Hog and Donkey.
Back where we started from. This photo makes the place look more "touristy" though!
Just before I get into my "trusty steed" and drive back, here is a view of some of the coast I'll be following!!!
Some photographs taken around the ancient Roman settlement of Reculver in Kent. Due to its geographical location, this part of Kent was originally the gateway for the Romans into England.
The walk here (Wantsum Walk) circles the "Isle" of Thanet, (when it was still an island, a long time ago.)
More recently, the area was used to test Barnes Wallace's "bouncing bomb". Several parts from prototypes of the bomb were washed ashore as recently as 1997!
This gallery is the first one on my site to have its pictures optimised for 1024x768 viewing. My visitors normally view the site at this resolution, so things are changing. I do take note of these things!
