Inspiration Wednesday – Maidstone

Today’s #InspirationWednesday is Maidstone, in Kent. This county town sits not far from London, with the River Medway running through the centre and joining it with Rochester and the Thames Estuary.


Known in the past as the ‘Garden of England’, the town has a rich history of agriculture. It was also the home to the ‘Sharps Toffee Factory’ (later part of the Cadbury Trebor Basset family) which provided a large proportion of employment to the area. Although the area has been developed and booms commercially, it has still maintained its historic charms and buildings, though.


The town offers a great retreat from busy day-to-day work life; enjoy a peaceful meander on foot or by boat down the River Medway, visit White Horse Wood Country Park or have a go on the Bredgar and Wormshill Light Railway! And with Ofsted showing that the local schools are well up to standard, this is a great spot to locate your family home.
