Into Wingham
The parish is entered at Trapham (gsv/kxcvp).
The first place of interest (gsv/g55ua) is the small industrial estate on the right (south) which stands on the edge of Wingham Green
The junction (gsv/prrxr) with Mill Road (to the right) is the heart of this area with its own Wingham Parish notice board, letterbox and bus stop.
Soon after (gsv/8hbaa) , on the left (north) is the junction with Wingham Road (Wingham Lane) leading to Ickham and Wickambreaux.
As you pass the Farm Shop (gsv/692g3) (on the right) you would once have been crossing the East Kent Light Railway. Wingham Canterbury Road Station stood on the other side of the road.
You will probably not notice that you are on Wingham Bridge (gsv/9ryx3) over the stream that filled the baths at Wingham Roman Villa. A footpath on the right (south) leads to Wingham Well.
You enter the village at the 30 mph sign and the first building appears (gsv/xbpnr)  as you approach a sharp bend to the left. (gsv/p2478) where a path/track leads to Hawarden Place
Before the next bend is Esprit du Jardin (gsv/96rk6) and on the left of the bend (gsv/hqem4)  is a foot path Bay Lane
Where the road straightens Cannon Row stands on the right (gsv/s22bf) and the gates of St Mary's on the left (gsv/vrmyv)
Wingham's architectural heritage begins to unfold on the right side of the road. At the junction with School Lane (gsv/zj24b) is the Old Cannonry, followed by the The Dog Inn (gsv/3jdu9) the Old Forge House (gsv/wn8gy), the Old Fire Station, and the The Red Lion Inn (gsv/ctfwv) which stands on the junction with the B2046. (gsv/27x3z) 
At this point the A257 turns sharp left and with the B2046 forms the High Street
