Bridge, Kent

Bridge, Kent

Sunday and the first day of rain for several weeks. We visited the village of Bridge in East Kent, where there is not only a bridge, but a ford. However after a dry few weeks this is the River Nailbourne, in the ford. I have to say, the puddle further along the road was bigger. The Nailbourne flows through several “bourne” villages and joins the River Stour east of Canterbury. The bridge in Bridge is on the main Roman road from London to Dover, Watling Street, but the village is now by-passed by the A2. Amazingly the village has three pubs within a stone throw of each other, as well as a flint church, primary school and shops, in a picturesque High Street.
