About The village

St Nicholas-At-wade is both a village and a Civil parish in Thanet District of Kent, England. The parish had a recorded population of 782 at the 2001 census. The village is best known for the local custom of Hoodening, a type of mumming, as well as for its prolific potato production.

The name derives from it's location on the Western boarder of the Isle of Thanet. Before the channels of the River Wantsum and River Stour silted up, one would have be able to 'wade' at this point, over the ford. In Roman times the channel was navigated and the site likely very busy with the Saxon Shore Forts of Regulbium (Reculver) and Rutupiae (Richborough) both close by. Remains of Roman shipbuilding yards are said to have been found between St Nicholas-At-Wade and the nearby village of Sarre.

There are two public houses 'The Bell' and 'The Sun'. There is also a small Post Office, and Antique shop and a farm marketing office. One of the main potato suppliers in the country has headquaters near St Nicholas Court in the Northwest of the village. Hedgeend Industrial Estate is on the Northern outskirts. There is a local St Nicholas CE Primary school. The village hall dating from 1930 houses a monthly craft fair and is also used as a poling station. There is a static caravan park at Frost Farm and a camping site at St Nicholas Farm.

The village holds many events annually, with an 'Open Gardens' bi annually, so why not take the opportunity to visit us very soon!
