Local Information about Snodland, Kent

From downland to marshes and a rich historical centre, all in the space of one parish, the small town of Snodland (once the largest village in England) and Sandhole Barn have a lot to offer locally.

Transformed from former chalk pits, Leybourne Lakes Country Park is a wonderful location for wildlife and birdwatching, whilst also allowing watersports enthusiasts the opportunity to windsurf, canoe and kayaking. Around the lakes are a series of woods for gentle walks and cycling. Another great sport for walkers and picnickers is Blue Bell Hill Picnic site. Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offering magnificent panoramic views over the Medway Valley, and with the North Downs Way passing along the northern edge of the site the are plenty of opportunities to explore. For golfers, just "a pitch and a putt" away is Oast Park Golf Centre, boasting a range of golfing facilities including a full nine hole course and a driving range complete with twenty bays that can be used at night. West Malling is a nearby pretty village offering a fabulous choice of restaurants and pubs with a scenic backdrop and also offering an extended golf course as one of its many charms.

Should you wish to venture out and about, the "world" is your oyster with excellent road and train links. Why not leave the car behind and take the train? London is accessed from Snodland's own train station and nearby Ebbsfleet provides international rail links to Brussels, Paris or Lille.

Why not take a historical visit to Rochester Castle, guarding the River Medway, this imposing fortress has a complex history of destruction and rebuilding. The great keep of Rochester Castle towers over the River Medway, dominating the skyline together with its inseparable twin, the magnificent cathedral.

Rochester Cathedral is the second oldest in England. As you wander around this beautiful and spiritual cathedral you will see a fine collection of medieval wall paintings and the first genuine fresco to be painted in an English cathedral for nearly 800 years.

Walk the length of the walls and grounds taking in the river and contrasting urban feel of the town centre and river traffic flowing by.

You can explore more about Charles Dickens at the Guildhall Museum's Dickens Discovery Rooms in Rochester and at Dickens World in Chatham Maritime.

Nelson's flagship HMS Victory was built at Royal Dockyard and is now a major visitor attraction The Historic Dockyard in Chatham.

Fancy something different? Diggerland is an adventure park based on diggers and small dumpers, located only 5 miles away where children are given the chance to ride on and even drive real construction site diggers and dumpers!

If walking is more your thing, The Saxon Shore Way stretches from Gravesend to Hastings, some 160 miles from start to finish. 26 miles of the route pass through Medway and have been divided into seven sections. Six of the sections are five miles or less in length. Each section can provide an enjoyable day out and offers the walker something different, from the desolate marshland between Cliffe and High Halstow, through the busy streets of Rochester and Chatham to the peaceful riverside of lower Gillingham and Rainham.
