The Defence of Swale Project

The Defence of Swale Project

The Defence of Swale project is a London Array funded and Kent County Council administered heritage project. The project is designed to map and catalogue 20th century military and civil defence assets of Swale to provide an overview of Swale’s defence heritage.

The project aims to provide an improved understanding of the District’s 20th century defence heritage, identification of key assets and opportunities for volunteers to engage in discovering the District’s past. Volunteer roles will include field based observation, survey and detailed recording of Swale’s defence heritage on Kent County Council’s Heritage Environment Record. This research and survey will result in a resource that should prove useful for future planning, management and conservation decisions and interpretation in the District, local research and use by local schools in their curriculum activities.
