Latest reviews | Events in Appledore | 10 Places to Stay

Situated on the northern edge of the Romney Marshes, Appledore is a civil parish and village in the Ashford District in Kent, 12 miles west of Ashford. At one time, Appledore was a port on the estuary of the river Rother but after severe storms in the 12th century, the river changed its course. After fighting King Alfred and his army for five years, the Danes invaded Appledore using the sea creeks linking the English Channel. Alred the Great is believed to have built a fort at Newenden and then defeated the Danes. The charming, medieval parish church is dedicated to St Peter and St Paul and was rebuilt after a French raid in 1380 burned it. The Domesday Book records that a church existed but no stonework from that time can now be identified although much of the 13th century work has survived. The church houses a magnificent tapestry depicting the history of this village which was created to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the church. The Royal Military Canal, on which Appledore stands, was built in 1804 as part of the nations’ defenses due to threat of invasion by Napoleon and was re-fortified during the 2nd World War when Hitler planned his assault.
