The Moat Lake & Woodland

A beautiful area in the village of Charing. Bounded by the A20 and the Old Ashford Road to the South and West and by the Moat housing estate to the North and open land to the East.

The lake, approximately three quarters of an acre in area and between three and fifteen feet in depth, supports a variety of water birds and pond life. The adjacent woodland area is similar in size and is filled with indigenous shrubs and trees, providing a haven for small mammals and bird life.

The area is accessed through a gate at the bottom end of the cul-de-sac part of “The Moat” estate between No’s 28 & 29.

Opening Times

‘You are very welcome to visit the Moat and enjoy this beautiful and tranquil setting. It is available for members of the public to visit on the second Saturday of every month between May and September 2024.’
