Royal Military Canal

The Royal Military Canal was built as protection against Napoleon, but never came to use for that case.
The canal itself is straight without natural bendings, in former times it had canons in every corner.
Apart from having a room with view on the canal, I only went for walks along it. Cyling is only possible on a short part of the canal before reaching Hythe.

The remains of Stutfall Castle (AD 260-27) in the foreground. In the background you can see Lympne Castle which dates from the 13th century.
