Wittersham

Wittersham in Kent

Wittersham is situated between Rye and Tenterden on the B2082, lying on the high ground of the Isle of Oxney, which at an earlier time was surrounded by water. The Isle of Oxney has wonderful views of unspoiled rolling countryside.

The village has a long history; the village sign having the image of a Danish longship incorporated into the design. It is believed that the Danes occupied an area of the Isle of Oxney in AD 892 as it offered a vantage point to observe the troops of Alfred the Great were camped at nearby Newenden.

In the village there is an attractive 13th century church - St John the Baptist and one remaining traditional pub The Swan, serving real ale. On Tuesday mornings there is a community market.

Stocks Mill, about one mile away from Wittersham on the B2082 is a fine example of a post mill, being built in 1781, the largest of its type in Kent. The white-weatherboarded mill is thought to have been moved from another site. Although the mill is no longer in production it is open to the public on Sunday afternoons in the Summer.
