The North Kent Marshes stretch from Dartford in the west to Whitstable in the east and include the Hoo Peninsula, the Medway, the Swale and Sheppey.
They are some of the most unspoilt landscapes in Kent, and are very rich in wildlife.
With the threat of an airport at Cliffe lifted, people from near and far want to see why this area is so special.
The Friends of North Kent Marshes is a voluntary group, formed in 2004 out of the No airport at Cliffe Campaign Liaison Group. Our aim is to promote the Marshes and the ways in which everyone can enjoy them. We work both with the local communities that live on and around the Marshes, and with groups such as the RSPB as they develop flagship visitor sites here.

The area faces many threats as pressure for land and development in the southeast continues. The more widely the North Kent Marshes is known and appreciated, the safer they will be.
