Country towns

Small towns grew throughout Canterbury to service the rural districts in the 19th century. After the Second World War many began to decline, but they are still a distinctive feature of Canterbury. This scene of farming people with their horses at Cheviot in 2006 conveys some of the spirit of small-town life.
