Finding Eanswythe

The richness of local history in and around The Bayle is simply unique in Folkestone – and is one of the many reasons why we guard our heritage so carefully!

As a new addition to the website, we have added a section to our Local History pages, which will take you to the wonderful website telling how St Eanswythe was found in 2020, with the hard work and research of a dedicated team and the use of modern technology to rediscover an early 7th Century princess, who renounced wealth in favour of living… just like us, somewhere in The Bayle!
