Welcome to Saltwood Parish Council 

About Saltwood 

Saltwood is a village situated in south east Kent, on high ground just to the north of Hythe.  At a latitude  & longitude of  51.0806°N 1.0776°E, the village falls within boundaries of the District of Folkestone and Hythe.

The village has countryside in and around its boundaries with plenty of footpaths and bridal ways. It is served by Sandling railway station, the M20 motorway and is also very close to the Eurotunnel terminal.

There are two primary schools (Saltwood CEP and St. Augustine’s RCP) and Brockhill Park Performing Arts College, an 11-18 comprehensive secondary school, with Performing Arts status.

Saltwood has a Norman church (St. Peter & St. Paul) and a castle. Saltwood Castle is infamous for sheltering four knights overnight before their journey to Canterbury to murder Thomas Beckett. The castle is now privately owned.

The village is fortunate to have a Village Hall (available to hire from the Trust) and its own children’s play park. Around ‘The Green’ is a pub, village shop, estate agent and a restaurant (2021 awarded a Michelin Star).
