Sholden is a quiet village situated between the town of Deal and Sandwich in Kent. We have a pretty Norman Church, an excellent Primary School, a local Cricket and Hockey Club,a welcoming Village Pub, a well stocked village store and nearby Fishing Lakes.

In the 1700’s it is alleged that Sholden was a centre for smuggling activity.  At one stage a battle took place between Revenue-men and 150 villagers who had just landed a consignment of contrabrand on the coast at Deal.  Highwaymen also frequented the road here.  In 1797 a new turnpike road was opened between Sandwich and Deal and toll gates placed in the village.  Extract taken from www.whitecliffscountry.org.uk and provided by Deal Information Centre.
