Oare Gunpowder Works

Oare Gunpowder Works Country Park is near Faversham, in Kent.  Not surprisingly, given its name, the site used to play a key role in the gunpowder industry and was an ammunitions factory during the First World War.  Today, however, it is a Green Flag park, with a variety of habitats – including the old buildings – and so an important site for wildlife.
