Travel guide to Hythe
The Gruesome Ossuary
The Gruesome Ossuary
Hythe is a small seaside town in Kent on England's South East coast, just a few miles from Folkestone where the Channel Tunnel starts. It is one of the five original Cinque Ports - pronounced "sink" in the Norman way as opposed to "sank" like the French - and has a rich maritime and military history playing important parts in both the Napoleonic Wars and the two World Wars.

The Crypt of St. Leonard's Church houses one of the only two ossuaries (bone stores) in England with 2,000 skulls and 8,000 thigh bones.

Hythe is a terminus for the Romney Hythe & Dymchurch Railway, the smallest gauge passenger railway in the world. [edit text]  [editors]
