The pretty village of Ruckinge stands on high ground bordering Romney Marsh and a belt of woodland divides the parish into Upper and Lower Ruckinge. The Royal Military Canal runs through the lower part of the parish offering good coarse fishing.
The charming old church has a fine Norman Tower and dates back to 1549. The family run Blue Anchor pub serves hot food and a warm welcome and dates back to 1765 when it had a close association with gangs of local smugglers! The old school is now well used as the village hall where ‘Themed Food Evenings’ are just one of the well supported functions enjoyed.
Some of the many organisations/clubs to be enjoyed at Ruckinge for the children are Scouts, Guides, Brownies, Cubs, Beavers, Rainbows, Sunday School and Venture Scouts. For the grown-ups there is a Football Club, Wine Circle, and Resident’s Assoction. Hamstreet is also within easy reach and offers all the facilities of a small town including primary school, pub, shops, doctors surgery, Indian restaurant and is well placed for easy access to Ashford International Station with its high speed link to London taking approximately 37 minutes.
