Church Lane, Sholden restricted byway

View from London Road

The view along Church Lane from London Road, with the graveyard of St Nicholas' church on the left. This part of Church Lane was, until the end of the eighteenth century, the road from Upper Deal to Sholden, Cottington, How Wall, Finglesham and Sandwich. It was relieved by the construction of the Dover, Deal and Sandwich turnpike, now London Road.
