The Greenery and open spaces
Bordered by rolling countryside, farmland, mature woodland and the occasional vineyard, Saxon Fields sits to the south of one of Kent’s most historically significant cities, Canterbury.
Canterbury has been occupied since Paleolithic times and was made famous by the ribald 14th Century tales of Geoffrey Chaucer. As England’s ecclesiastical capital, Canterbury is a city steeped in history and its world-famous cathedral, where Thomas Becket was martyred in 1170, has UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
On the southern border of the city, Saxon Fields has an exceptional on-site community, including shops, offices, a new school, wildlife corridors and cricket pitch. Homeowners will get a real sense of space at Saxon Fields – something that lockdown has evidentially made buyers aware of – with plenty of open green areas, meadows and children’s play parks.
