Our small urban campus, is on the site of the Outer Precincts of St Augustine’s Abbey, which is part of a UNESCO World Heritage site and a scheduled ancient monument. Archaeology surrounds and constrains us at every turn, but is also a signal to remember and learn from our heritage.
It is the home for the only remaining wall of the ancient Brew/Bake house. An inspiration for us to grow heritage hops, sourced from the national hop collection, supported by the tennis court fence; brew our first Green Chapel Ale in partnership with the Canterbury Brewers; Build a mobile bread oven; isolate yeast strains from our tree bark; and learn the art of bee keeping. Students have been the life-blood of this project, from individuals to whole student societies.
This project has brought education, food and heritage to life; and has enhanced links to our communities internally and externally.
