Maidstone is the county town in Kent, positioned by the River Medway and it hosts the offices of the county council. The river served as a trading route for agriculture in times gone by. The history of the settlement itself stretches as far back as the Stone Age. Residents these days tend to be employed in services, retail outlets or in administration. Maidstone also acts as a commuting hub for the city of London. Leisure pursuits abound in the town with a good mix of local sports clubs and hobby groups. Clare Park in particular is an epicentre for much of this energetic activity. Maidstone is also a popular location for tourists visiting Kent. Residents are friendly, hospitable and extremely dedicated to supporting their local community.
Maidstone is set within a beautiful environment not far from where the River Medway links up to the Beult and Teise at Yalding and the river itself runs through the town centre. The town of Maidstone is located in front of two hills with Penenden Heath within sight - a majestic setting. Maidstone itself sees the conjoining of two waterways - the Medway with the River Len. It's not a long river but the current has been powerful enough in the past to generate more than 30 mills. There are some delightful ponds on the river water, which feature on the landscape and look simply tranquil. Maidstone also incorporates smaller settlements nearby - Barming, Allington, Sandling, Penenden Heath, Bearsted, Weavering Street, and Tovil.
