Sandhole Barn

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.

Lime working was one of Snodland's prime industries in the 18th Century, supplying lime to build both Waterloo Bridge and the New London Bridge. 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.
