historic site

When the Romans built a fort here in 43AD, the sea was almost a mile away. Reculver guarded the north end of the Wantsum Channel that separated the Isle of Thanet from the rest of Kent. Since then, much has changed. By the early 19th century the sea was so close that the villagers moved inland. The two 12th-century towers of the ruined church stand among the remains of an important Roman fort and a Saxon monastery. The walk takes you around the surrounding countryside and through Reculver Country Park where there is a visitor centre displaying more information about the history of the local area.

This trail starts off along side a busy mobile home site then quickly turns into open countryside. At the time of year that we walked this trail parts had been ploughed up making it not only difficult to see the trail but very not easy to traverse - this could become muddy..... Some stretches were very narrow with a couple of styles to climb over and some steep steps cut into the soil. However, this is another trail that holds fantastic views and is well worth putting up with a couple of obstacles.
