Sandwich, in Kent, one of the original Cinque Ports and once an important naval base, now lies two miles inland. The town dates from Anglo Saxon times. The sixteenth century Guildhall still stands in the central square called Cattle Market. Sandwich has some fine Elizabethan buildings. The Barbican, once the gateway to the town and now serving as a toll gate to the bridge over the River Stour and an excellent starting point for the ramparts walk around the town, remains a well preserved reminder of medieval times. There are several golf courses, including the Royal St George, one of the finest in England. The map below shows the features of the town of Sandwich as it was in the mid twentieth century.
