Wittersham is situated between the towns of Rye in Sussex and Tenterden in Kent and is located on the high ground of the Isle of Oxney which as the name suggests was once surrounded by water.
Wittersham is the largest village on the former island and offers wonderful views of unspoiled rolling countryside.
The village has a long history with the village sign including the image of a Danish Longship incorporated into the design. It is believed that the Danes once occupied an area of the Isle of Oxney in AD 892 as it offered a vantage point to observe the troops of Alfred the Great who were camped at nearby Newenden.
In the village there is an attractive 13th century church known as St John the Baptist and one remaining CAMRA approved pub called The Swan which offers award-winning real ale.
On Tuesday mornings there is a popular and well-attended community market held in the village hall which specialises in organic and local fresh produce amongst other products.
Just one mile outside Wittersham you will fine Stocks Mill, a fine example of a post mill, built in 1781 and the largest of its type in Kent. The white-weather boarded mill is thought to have been moved from another site and although the mill is no longer in production it is open to the public on Sunday afternoons throughout the summer.
