Shepway is one of the district council in Kent, with its administrative centre in Folkestone, the Romney Marsh is in the district as well as Hythe. Shepway was the name of a much older district in Kent which may have been of Jutish origin and called Lympne originally. By the 13th century, however the name had changed to Shepway, which naturally means sheep way. Romney Marsh sheep are world famous as they are hardy creatures who can tolerate living in wet conditions. They have been exported to Australia and other countries since the 19th century. Smuggling gangs were prevalent in the Marsh area from the 17th to the 19th century, the Owlers and The Aldington Gang being the most notorious.
Nowadays, of course there aren’t smugglers who lure ships to rocks, but there are road traffic accidents in Shepway, just as there are in most places across the country.
