Very interesting building with many cuttings and photos of the gunpowder industry at its height. Enough remains on the site to give an idea of its original use. Friendly volunteer in charge on the day we visited.. it is worth taking the Gunpowder Trail walk...More

You can see the mill with the history & the story of how it's made, which is very interesting. A visit lasts around half and hour.

I've lived around Faversham for quite a while but never bothered to visit the Gunpowder Mills. There are a few walk options and plenty of information and points of interest.

It's a lovely walk round Stonebridge. Bring bread for the sucks. Keep little ones close because of the stream. Not a big building notice says no tiny children but you would pop in and out whilst passing on a lovely walk.

Really lovely walk through gorgeous forestry, swans on the lake, cows in the field and a little bit of history to discover. A perfect family walk.

Important industrial heritag,e with one shed and one waterwheel remaining of the original row that made up the Gunpowder Mills, now stranded among a 1960s housing estate. Lots of information on the walls, but I think best appreciated with a knowledgeable guide there to bring...More

Hard to constructively praise or condemn. This is not for thrillseekers, Americans would build a whole theme park around such a place. This is a very British understated learning experience , it doesn't really stand out and is largely unmemorable but perfectly ok too.
