Moving to Kent?
Because of the plentiful orchards and hop gardens, Kentish people like to call their
county “The Garden of England”, which makes it sound like a gentle, peaceful place.
In fact, its position between London and the English Channel has put it on the front
line during several conflicts, most notable the Battle of Britain, when the east
of the county was known as “Hell’s Corner”. Even its name should be a warning: “Kent”
derives from the Brythonic word “cantus”, which means “rim” or “border”. Borders
are never safe…
Kent has been inhabited since the Palaeolithic era and there is a rich sequence
of Bronze Age, Iron Age, and Roman era occupation. It was under the Saxons that
the region rose to prominence: Augustine converted King Ethelbert to Christianity
in 596 and the following year Pope Gregory I made him the first Archbishop of Canterbury.
Since then, Canterbury has been the centre of Christianity in England. Following
the Norman invasion in 1066, the Kentish took “Invicta”, meaning “undefeated”, as
their motto. Their resistance to William I was so unrelenting that Kent was designated
as a semi-autonomous County Palatine in 1067.
During the next few hundred years, the county remained a focus for rebellion: Wat
Tyler’s Peasants’ Revolt, Jack Cade’s Kent Rebellion and Wyatt’s uprising against
Mary I were all fomented here. in the 17th century, it was the subject of raids
by the Dutch Navy and forts were built all along the coast; this would prove useful
a century later, during the wars with France. Smugglers were active all along the
coast through the early 19th century, after which things stayed peaceful until the
Second World War.
The city of Canterbury is very old, established by the Celts. Nothing survives from
that period, but Roman structures can be seen at Quiningate, a blocked gate in the
city wall, and Dame John Mound, once part of a cemetery. The city’s jewel is of
course Canterbury Cathedral, which forms a World Heritage Site along with the Saxon
St Martin’s Church and the ruins of St Augustine’s Abbey. St Margaret’s is a pretty
medieval church but what’s really fun is its Canterbury Tales exhibition, in which
actors enact Chaucer’s stories. The Old Synagogue is one of two surviving Egyptian
synagogues. Other popular sights include the Old Weaver’s House and St Martin’s
Kent is one of the warmest parts of Britain. The hottest temperature ever recorded
in Britain was reached in Brogdale in 2003 – an amazing 38.5°C. Considering this,
there are surprisingly few seaside resorts: one is Dungeness, also the site of Peter
Greenaway’s garden. Another, Margate was a strong inspiration for the landscape
painter J.M.W. Turner. The White Cliffs of Dover are famous world-wide; the town
itself is a busy port which retains a charming old world feel in the centre. The
other great landmark in Kent is the Medway Tombs, an awesome group of Neolithic
chambered long barrows and other megaliths in the Medway Valley. They are the only
megalith group in Eastern England and use the same stone as Stonehenge.
