In the 13th century this town was a major harbour in England for the export of wool, but the sea has now receded and today Sandwich lies on the silted estuary of the River Stour. The local stone is flint and Alec Clifton -Taylor is delighted to find a garden well 'where the flints have been both knapped and squared - a remarkable feat of craftsmanship for 1400!' During the 16th century
Dutch refugees settled here and gave the town its legacy of characteristic gables, delightful little 'Dutch' bricks and richly coloured and textured pantiles on the roofs. The grandest building beyond question is The
Salutation. This beautifully proportioned house and glorious garden is the work of Sir Edwin Lutyens - 'surely the greatest English architect of the last hundred years.' Film editor SUSAN SPIVEY Executive producer BRUCE NORMAN (R)
