Snodland is a small town and there is evidence that there has been a settlement at this location since Roman times. It was an important crossing point over the Medway for Pilgrims heading to Canterbury. The parish church is a Grade: 1 listed building, dedicated to All Saints. The Normans built it in the 12th century with additions and extensions in the following three centuries, the most prominent being the addition of the tower in the 15th century. The station building has recently been refurbished with new access for buses and improved parking as the station is now served by High Speed 1 at peak times.
We would like to thank "Rainham Rail Enthusiast" for allowing us to link his video of the station.
