History of Wye

The history of this charming, quintessentially Kentish village can be traced right back to the Romans; by ?the medieval period Wye, usefully located on the River Stour, was known as an important market centre. Although there may be no evidence left now to see, during the First World War ?an RAF training aerodrome was built here for bi-planes used on the Western Front. But it’s agriculture that is really at the heart of Wye. Set among rolling, fertile fields, it has always been farming country and for many years Wye Agricultural College was one of the most important study centres for rural business, biological sciences and agriculture.
