The Grove Ferry Boat Club was founded in 1964.
The area took its name from a hand drawn ferry that crossed the River Stour. The local pub, built in 1831 also takes the name The Grove Ferry Inn.
The nearby Grove Ferry Bridge was renovated by Kent County Council in September 2000. This is close to the railway level crossing, the site of a former dismantled railway station.

Lullingstone Country Park
Come along to the park to have fun pond dipping to discover the water mini-beasts. Our expert ranger will be on hand to help identify all the creatures found in this underwater world. You can then move on to discover some of our meadow or woodland mini-beasts.
There is a lovely play area suitable for ages 3 and above.
Flying drones is not permitted at country park sites. This is to keep the public safe (walkers, cyclists, horse riders) and to avoid significant disturbance to wildlife and ground nesting birds.
Please do not fly drones under any circumstance.
