First time viewing your collection, and I see quite a lot of unique, interesting, and charming architecture, communities, and shops in Canterbury. Borough Green has the beauty of a medieval-era community that offers tons of interesting structures and street scales that makes me say that it is indeed a well-preserved English town. I am particularly fascinated with the contrasts you've presented: between the fortified castle with a moat and fabulous homes and shops, those truly make me want to browse through your district in greater detail because, to me, I've been accustomed to cities with tall structures and lots of congestion. Borough Green, to me, is like a pleasant community that shares a rich and historic past with eclectic and wonderful present that blend together to create a diverse town. To me, it looks much better than a typical suburb out here in the US: I wish I can walk through that town and enjoy the historic structures around town.

Excellent introduction, my friend! Looking forward to more from you!
