The village of Wye lies on the River Great Stour in the county of Kent in the south of England. Wye is located some 19km from historic Canterbury, a major tourist daw within Kent and an ancient place of pilgrimage.
Famous for its beautiful surroundings and high standard of living, Wye was voted the 3rd best place to live within the UK by the readers of The Sunday Times in March this year. The village lies along the ancient Roman road between Canterbury and Hastings at the south-east coast and archaeologist excavations unearthed a Roman villa and camp in the area.
One of the most important landmarks in the area, the chalk drawing of the Wye Crown attracts a large number of walkers. The Wye Crown overlooks Wye to the east of the village and from its lofty position high up in the Downs visitors can enjoy splendid views over this area of outstanding natural beauty. The Crown was carved out from the chalky ground by students to commemorate the coronation of Edward VII in 1902.
The village lies on the Pilgrim’s Way and at a junction of the North Downs Way, a long distance walk that covers the distance between Farnham in Surrey to Dover at the English Channel and also incorporates the Stour Valley Walk that leads from Lenham via Ashford and Canterbury to the historic village of Sandwich in Kent, a popular stop-over point before reaching the coast.
The various routes have to be maintained to ensure nothing untoward happens to walkers. Tourism is a major source of income in this area, attracting both day visitors and long-stay holidaymakers. Although most accidents that happen on walks are self-inflicted, some can be down to somebody else’s negligence. If you’re trying to climb over a turnstile in a fence and that fence collapses, it is no use the farmer pointing to your weight and blaming you for the accident.
