Rather interesting Fordwich facts
Did you know that Fordwich is the smallest town (by population) in Britain, and has the smallest town hall? It was once much more significant as the port of Canterbury. An annual link with that past occurs when its Mayor-Deputy (the office of mayor there having ended in the late 19th century) hands over the grand sum of 6s 8d to the Mayor of Sandwich, payment for its part in the Cinque Ports system.
