Littlebourne is a village and civil parish 4 miles from Cantebury and 6 miles for Sandwich, Kent. It is situated on the A257 Canterbury to Sandwich and Deal Road.
The Great Barn that flanks one side of the churchyard is thought to have been the monks of St. Augustines 14th century grange. The village stands beside the Little Stour River. There are still a number of quaint timbered houses and at the north end of the village is a very distinctive shape of the Littlebourne Mill straddling the river.
The 13th century church of St. Vincent of Saragossa is thought to have been founded by the monks of St. Augustines’s Abbey and contains an ancient wall painting depicting Saint Christopher, patron saint of travellers. It is also thought that the convent of St. Augustine used Littlebourne for the plantation of vines.
