Ickham, Kent

Ickham is a village within the civil parish of Ickham and Well, five miles east of Canterbury in Kent, South East England. The village is centred around a single road with many old and well preserved houses, with the 13th-century Parish Church of St John the Evangelist in the midst. A recent archaeological excavation at Ickham has revealed evidence of Roman metalwork and copper broaches. The Little Stour river runs past the village, on its way to the English Channel.
