Hythe, south coast of Kent
A few hours in an old Cinque Port town
Photos and report by Mike Slocombe, July 2006

Sitting on the edge of Romney Marsh, Hythe is a small coastal market town in the District of Shepway.

One of the original Cinque Ports of England, silting over the years has removed all treace of its once-thriving port and harbour.

With its High Street featuring an attractive mix of Medieval and Georgian buildings, it's a pretty place to visit for a day out.
