Shorne Wood Country Park is in Gravesend, Kent, England. It was once part of a large estate and then later passed to the council to be used as a country park.
This park was once part of the large Cobham Hall Estate. The main entrance to the Hall, leads through the park with various other carriage rides around the estate. Then from the 1930s to the 1970s, part of the estate (was leased by Lord Darnley) was used for clay extraction (by a cement company), using clay pit beneath the ancient woodland. Then in 1987, the 288-acre (1,170,000 m2) of land, came under ownership of Kent County Council, then with the help of Gravesham Borough Council, it was turned into a country park and then opened to the public.
