High Street

We've crossed the Stour and are looking up the High Street. This is the main shopping street, although the large building on the right is the County Hotel. Remember that this was once the main London to Dover road and this hotel in the centre of the City catered for passing travellers. It manages to exist today because it has access from the rear and cars can park in its garages.

In the foreground, the tiles are coloured and mark out the foundations of All Saint's Church, demolished in 1937. The Trust excavated the site in 1986.

Turn left here for Best Lane.
