Graveney is a relatively small but widely dispersed village located between Faversham and Whitstable in Kent, England. The main part of the village is located along the intersection of Seasalter Road, Sandbanks Road and Head Hill Road (at the railway crossing), which is surrounded by farmland. The rest of the village is dispersed amongst this farmland.

Features include a local Pub ('The Four Horseshoes'), a primary school and a church. There is also a regular bus service that runs through the village.

Graveney Church[edit]

All Saints Church, Graveney

All Saints Church, Graveney, was constructed in Norman language times, but it is mainly 14th century. The connections between the village of Graveney and the Christian Church can be traced back to a time before the Domesday Survey.[1] The marshes are part of the South Swale SSSI.



The Saxon Shore Way (long distance path) passes around the Graveney Marshes (between Seasalter and Faversham).[2] The marshes are part of the South Swale SSSI.
