This was once called Church Marshes Country Park.GeographyChurch Marshes is at the base of Kemsley Down, on the banks of Milton Creek at its estuary with the River Swale, which acts as a boundary with the Isle of Sheppey. It's partly due to these two navigable waters that link directly to the River Thames and its estuary across the English Channel to Europe, that has formed the marshes and nearby locations their rich history. The marshes are named after Holy Trinity Church in Milton Regis. .HistoryThe site of the country park has been used since early times and archaeological evidence has been dated to show that, Saxon and Roman Britain settlements were present in the vicinity. Holy Trinity Church and Castle Roughare the last remaining local historical features.In the Victorian era, the region was used for barge-building and gravel extraction for brick-making.
