Brookland

Brookland in Kent Village Guide

Situated between the Walland and Romney Marshes, Brookland has a history of smuggling. In 1821 a notorious group called ‘The Aldington Gang’ were confronted at Camber whilst bringing contraband ashore. Some 200 men fled across marshland to Brookland where the ensuing fight resulted in 5 people being killed and their leader, Cephus Quested, duly being tried and hung at Newgate prison. Nowadays life is a lot quieter particularly as the A259 by-passes the village.
