Imagine a community who lived off the land, eating locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables with zero food miles. A place where you can buy delicious fresh homemade ice cream with your pocket money. A place with a factory which makes exotic drinks. Welcome to Swanscombe!

Join us on a walk where you will get to eat history. Taste the flavours of the local produce and listen to stories of manufacturers, farmers and shop keepers who sold edible produce to the surrounding areas.

On the walk we trace the history of food and its influence on culture, politics and architecture.

This walk is funded by Ebbsfleet International Development and is part of the Gathering event.
