Kent Mining Museum

A new museum to celebrate Kent’s rich mining heritage is being developed at Betteshanger Country Park.

Opening in 2018, the Kent Mining Museum will be at the heart of Betteshanger’s new Visitor Centre.

You can help support the Kent Mining Museum development by sharing your memories. You or a family member may have worked at one of the Kent collieries or lived in the surrounding communities. You may have a childhood memory or even memories of visiting the country park.
