Geography

The area is in the main rural, although the entire coastal strip is taken up by the almost unbroken sprawl of seaside towns from Seasalter to Herne Bay. Between them and the city there is high land, well wooded, south of which the River Stour flows from its source beyond Ashford. The city of Canterbury stands upon this river. Although it was primarily religious in its foundation, Canterbury is now also the home of the University of Kent. Canterbury stood at the end of the Pilgrims Way, and also on the Roman road Watling Street: the main London to Dover road which replaced the latter now bypasses the city.
