This Green Flag Park lies to the east of Herne Bay and is managed by the city council in partnership with Kent Wildlife Trust and English Heritage. The Park provided a setting for the historic St Mary’s Church, a location where settlement can be traced back to Roman times.
The site is also the location for chalk grassland habitat and has a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) status. The visitor centre has recently been refurbished with a grant from the National Lottery, and the site is very popular attracting visitors both locally and further a field. It is also a destination point on the coastal footpath and cycle way networks.
This ancient settlement has a unique mixture of wildlife, history, conservation and leisure, and so provides something for everyone.
