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.
