It is a much loved building in Fordwich, looked after by Fordwich United Charities and our wonderful custodians.

Our knowledgeable custodians are keen to show you around and tell you about Fordwich Town Hall’s history, its importance and connection to the building of Canterbury Cathedral.

Fordwich Town Hall is still used today and we hold town council, trustee and custodian meetings here.
