Swalecliffe is a part of the ribbon development of the north Kent coast between Whitstable and Herne Bay in Southeast England.

History[edit]

In 2005 Calmont purchased the land that used to be the petrol station and garage "Quinneys Auto services" and converted it into a prosperous development named after the petrol station. The development features 16 houses and 4 apartments, 12 are semi-detached houses under the name of "Albany" and 4 terraced homes under the name of "Carlton", both of which are 3 bedroom houses. The apartments each have their own names; Bloomsbury, Belgravia, Chelsea and Mayfair. The private road on which the houses lie is called "Quinneys Place", some mapping tools and postcode finders still do not have this road indexed in their databases.

Transport[edit]

Chestfield & Swalecliffe railway station lies on the Chatham Main Line. Both the railway and Thanet Way run between Swalecliffe and the neighbouring settlement of Chestfield.

Religion[edit]

There is a village church and hall.
