About Faversham

Faversham Creek is a drying creek running south off the The Swale at Harty Ferry, some 6 miles west of Whitstable.

Swale Borough Council, Faversham Town Council and the Medway and Swale Estuary Partnership are working together to promote Faversham Creek and its surrounding countryside to local and continental sailors. A not-for-profit trust has recently been formed with the aims of regenerating the creek as a community resource, and promoting tourism linked to the town's maritime heritage.

The Front Brents Jetty on Faversham Creek has 20 berths. All water, electricity supply, lighting and security has been renewed in 2001. Faversham Creek runs into the town and the berths are just five minutes walk from the town centre. Berths are also available at Iron Wharf on Faversham Creek, and Testers and Youngboats on Oare Creek.
