The South East of England includes the counties of Kent, Surrey, West Sussex and East Sussex. Its proximity to the continent has dictated its history. Roman remains dot the coastal area, and many roads, including the main A2 London to Dover road, follow the arrow-straight tracks laid by the legionaries. In 597AD Augustine established a monastery in Kent, at Canterbury. This is the home of the Head of the Church of England, the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The last successful invasion of England took place in 1066, when the Normans overran King Harold's army near Hastings, on a site now marked by Battle Abbey. The Normans left their mark all over this corner of the kingdom, and Kent remains unmatched in its profusion of Medieval castles including Dover and Rochester and fortified ports such as Rye and Sandwich.
So far I've only managed to add photographs from Kent and Sussex, others will come slowly.
