Wetham Green is a village in the English county of Kent, near Sittingbourne. It has a population of about 4500.
Its name comes from an old Anglo-Saxon word meaning “wetland.” The village’s history goes back to just a tiny hamlet with scattered farms on its outskirts. Some records show that Wetham Green had at least one public house by 1837, and some thatched cottages were standing on Station Road and Mill Lane by 1890. After World War II, new housing estates were built for people who had been bombed out of London during the Blitz, including two council estates off Brook Street which still exist today. One estate was demolished in the 1970s and redeveloped as private housing. Wetham Green, like many other small settlements around the area, has over the years evolved into a large village with homes and shops that serve not just its local population but those who travel from adjacent villages too.
Wetham’s location near the county town of Maidstone and the main transport links, the M2 and High Speed 1, to London and Europe has helped it grow both in population and business.
The village is served by three churches (Church of England, Baptist, and Methodist) and one primary school (Wetham Green Primary School). The recreation ground has a bowls club with its bowling green and clubhouse.
St Giles’ Church is located in the center of Wetham Green and was built around 1150 A.D. It has a square tower without any pinnacles, which some people describe as “dog-toothed.” There are three memorial stones inside the church; one dated 1679 records that Robert Ewe was 77 years old, another from 1693 records that Mary Tylle was 59, and a gravestone dated 1704.
The village green is located on the edge of the recreation ground and has a pond at its center. Next to it is a large oak tree that probably dates back to when the green would have been waterlogged as the village was one of many small islands on the marshy land between Sittingbourne and Faversham. The green still floods at certain times of the year, so the pond takes water from the recreation ground. Nearby are two large houses, Northridge House and Homeleigh House, built in Victorian times for the Sitlington Brick and Tile Company.
Wetham Green has many local shops, restaurants, pubs, and supermarkets within walking distance of the village center. There is also a doctor’s surgery/pharmacy, dental practice, and opticians. It is home to several businesses with national recognition, including The Brook Hotel, which won the A.A. 3-star Premium Gold Award.
An award-winning fish and chip shop, Ye Olde Smack, won the 2008 East Kent Fish & Chip Shop of the Year Award for its fresh fish and traditional batter recipe. The village also has several restaurants, including Chinese, Indian, Thai, Italian and English cuisine.
Wetham Green Community Centre is located near the center of the village. It is a popular venue for local groups, including a Women’s Institute, Badminton Club, Art classes, Keep Fit group, and Brownies.
In recent years Wetham Green has been home to several well-known people from television and radio who have chosen to move into the area. These include BBC presenter and journalist Bill Buckley; BBC Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans; BBC News North of England correspondent Danny Savage; singer and actress Rosemary Leach and University Challenge host Bamber Gascoigne.
