Location
Nestled between the seaside towns of Birchington and Herne Bay and only 10 miles from the historic city of Canterbury is the semi-rural village of St Nicholas-at-Wade. Originally named after the Patron Saint of sailors, it is reputed that there was once a channel of water that you would have to wade across to reach the village. The Wantsum Channel was a strait separating the Isle of Thanet from the north-eastern extremity of the English county of Kent and connecting the English Channel and the Thames Estuary. It was a major shipping route when Britain was part of the Roman Empire, and continued in use until it was closed by silting in the late Middle Ages. Its course is now represented by the River Stour and the River Wantsum, which is little more than a drainage ditch lying between Reculver and St Nicholas-at-Wade and joins the Stour about 1.7 miles (2.7 km) south-east of Sarre. St Nicholas is proud of its village hall dating from the 1930ís and its sports field with cricket pavilion in Bell Meadow that hostís cricket matches and of course, not forgetting the Church dating back to Norman times. St Nicholas boasts one of the most sought after primary schools in the area and has an outstanding Ofsted report. There are two local pubs serving exceptional food and a village shop with post office. Despite its semi-rural setting, it is under 1 mile to the A299 that provides links to the M2 and only 3.8 miles to Minster train station that has connections to Canterbury West where you can pick up the high-speed service that will take you to London St Pancras in under an hour. It is only a 4.5 mile drive to the beautiful Minnis Bay which is popular for windsurfing, kitesurfing and provides access to some excellent coastal cycling and walking routes. There are three prestigious golf courses in the area. Royal St Georges - home to the Open every 4 to 5 years (the next date is in 2020), Princes Golf Course and North Foreland, which are all 'Links' style courses.
