'Miracle' unearthed in Folkestone

Archaeologists and volunteers in Folkestone have unearthed an ancient watercourse, said in legend to have have been created by an Anglo-Saxon Princess.

The engineering was so complex people believed the 7th century Princess had performed a miracle because the water appeared to flow uphill.

The water travelled for two miles towards St Eanswythe's convent in the heart of the town.

The water-course provided Folkestone with water for centuries and is believed to be one of the reasons the town was situated there.
