Oad Street is a small hamlet in the English county of Kent.[1]

Oad Street forms part of the civil parish of Borden which, in turn, is part of Swale district. Oad Street is located close to Junction 5 of the M2 motorway where it crosses the A249 road.


In 1798, Edward Hasted records that this hamlet was once called Hoade Street and Woodstreet, before coming Oade Street. Named after a nearby Chestnut Wood (which covered the hillside down towards Danaway). In 1653, most of the parish was controlled by William Genery (from Throwley).[2]


In the hamlet are 3 listed buildings, Grade II* listed 'Yew Tree Cottage',[3]Grade II listed 'The Olde House'[4] and Grade II listed 'Hoad House'.[5]

Also a local public house, the 'Plough & Harrow' public house.[6]

It also had a former Wesleyan Chapel (Oad Street Methodist Church),[7] now converted into a private residence.

Oad Street Centre, a craft shop and gallery.[8]
