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.
