KENT is the "Gateway and Garden of England".
Its history and heritage have been shaped by the sea and countryside and its closeness to Europe and London.
Roman Christianity was re-established here in AD 597. The Cathedrals of Canterbury and Rochester and their attendant manasteries were major land owners and leaders in architectural and cultural styles. In conflict it has been our first line of defernce. In peace it has been a highway for monarchs, pilgrims and ideas.
This talk explores the county's history and heritage throughg art and architecture.
