@photosofbritain Tag a friend who would love a good punt during the English summer! I'm typing this as the rain is lashing down and the sky is deliciously gloomy. Still, I'm dreaming of weather like this again in ancient Canterbury, England. Love this shot by @andyhaslamphoto. . The lovely River Stour pictured here flows through Canterbury and could lay claim to be Englandโ€™s most historic river. The city is 1 hour 30 mins by car (or just over an hour by train) from London. Well worth it - the beauty of Canterbury Cathedral (built circa 1070AD) is worth the journey alone, let alone the wonky streets and buildings. . Certainly in Roman and medieval times the river was a major transport route, connecting Canterbury with mainland Europe. The earliest records of the cityโ€™s name date back to AD 150 when its ancient Roman name was Durovernia, Dorobernia or Davovernon from the British words duro (fort) and verno (swamp). Truth be told, there was a fair amount of boggy, swampy parts of Britain back in the day. In 1724 when Daniel Defoe (author of Robinson Crusoe) passed by where I grew up, he noted..."the surface at a distance looks black and dirty and frightful to think of, for it will bear neither horse nor man...what nature meant by such a useless production, tis hard to imagine, but the land is entirely to waste..."... I mean.. rude, right? Proper rude. Thankfully by the 1970s it wasn't as swampy, although oddly I do feel at home in a big bog. . Found the photographer for this shot after I spotted it was mistagged elsewhere. Photo by @andyhaslamphoto ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Want your Photos of Britain to be featured?

Do you have Uber? I donโ€™t know if we should rent a car or what we should do. My husband and I can only walk a mile but I want to see these places. Can someone please recommend? From USA. (Sorry about Trump!)
