Shorne Woods Country Park
Brewers Road Shorne
Shorne Woods is a SSSI Kent County Council country park. For the past six years it has hosted an ongoing archaeology project. This has sought to understand the history and archaeology of the Park. The medieval site of Randall Manor sits within the park and has been the subject of a community archaeology excavation, now in its seventh year. The project has also investigated prehistoric mesolithic flint sites and world war two bases built in the Park. Archaeology volunteers work year round in conjunction with Kent County Council's community archaeologist, to better understand, conserve and interpret the Park's past.
