More about Dunkirk
The parish includes the outlying hamlets in Hinxhill, Naccolt, Withersdane and Pickersdane and several manors, farmsteads and ancient woodlands dot the downland landscape on either side of the fertile valley of the Kentish Stour. This is a rare natural chalk stream, which flows through a gap in the scarp slope of the North Downs to Canterbury and the Cinque Port of Sandwich, and then into the sea at Pegwell Bay.
The Wye National Nature Reserve is a mile east of the village, on the scarp slope of the North Downs. The reserve is a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) designated primarily to protect 345 acres of rare species-rich chalk downland.
These slides show how Wye's landscape changes through the seasons.
