Military Canal, Hythe
Military Canal, Hythe
The canal was built as part of the south-east's strategic defences during the period of the Napoleonic wars at the beginning of the 19th century. Here, near Town Bridge, it is rounding one of the 'kinks' built into its course every few hundred yards, such that soldiers could fire on the enemy from positions within the curve.
