Old England's Hole: the Falstaff at Canterbury and Windmill on Barham Downs

Old England's Hole: the Falstaff at Canterbury and Windmill on Barham Downs

On the way to Barham Downs by Bekesbourne one might easily miss "Old England's Hole" (bottom), which lies behind a roadside hedge just outside the little village of Bridge. Here amidst oak and birch are still clear traces of the ancient earthworks, British and Saxon. Standing just outside the West Gate of Canterbury, the Falstaff inn (top left), with its swinging sign, is an old house containing some excellent oak panelling. The old windmill on Barham Downs (top right) is still working.
