Shepherdswell is a village in Kent, England, UK. It is notable for the East Kent Railway, whose terminus is sited there. This was originally one of Colonel Stephens's lines and ran to Wingham. The section as far as Eythorne is now run by a preservation society. It has a mainline railway station named Shepherds Well with direct trains to Dover and London via Faversham. The village social life centres on the local Grade I listed church 'Church of St Andrew', and the village hall, which is host to a number of events including regular charity jumble sales and a pre-school playgroup.Currently the village has a thriving "pub" scene with two very different establishments. The Grade II listed Bell by the village green, near to the church and the Bricklayers Arms along Eythorne Road. Part of the Shepherd Neame Brewery franchise. Additionally the village has a mini-supermarket and Post Office.The town is also on the Miner's Way Trail. The trail links up the coalfield parishes of East Kent. In the town it also links with the North Downs Way, which also passes through the town between Whitfield and Woolage Village.SportShepherdswell is also home the "Shepherdswell Spartans Football Club". Football has been played in the village of Shepherdswell for at least 98 years. Originally the team was called Shepherdswell FC and played from about 1908 until 1965; the name of the next major club in the village was the Whitehall Spartans, who played for most of the 1970s; they would become responsible for the name of today's current team. In 1983–84, a team managed by Jim Osborne was formed again and named after their then sponsors A1 Taxis which entered the Dover District Sunday League. By the start of the next season their name had reverted to something more recognisable as the main team in the village – Shepherdswell Spartans was born. They took the name Spartans from the local pub The Whitehall Inn which was their social base until the pub was shut down in 1989. Today the team is still going strong and has their social base as The Bricklayers Arms where they can be found on a Sunday afternoon either toasting their victories or drowning their sorrows in defeat.
