Not the most explosive attraction in Faversham.
Apr 2018 • Friends
So here we have the remains of a gunpowder Mill,lots of information boards,the central mill and there was a member of staff on hand to answer questions.To be honest Chart Gun powder Mills wasn't really my cup of tea,plus it was a very short visit our group must have spent not much more than 15-20 mins at this attraction.A lot of better things to see and visit in Faversham,than this.

Fascinating remains of a gunpowder mill
Jul 2017 • Family
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 around the town too.

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.

A great afternoon walk

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.

Pop in if passing

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.

Lovely country walk
Mar 2016 • Family
This is a lovely place to have a walk for free!
Not big but enough to spend a few hours with young children. There are signs everywhere directing you on various walks and telling you about the gunpowder works and it's history.
Been in Faversham for more than 15 years and only just discovered this gem of a place.
I would have given it 5 stars if the visitors centre was open on this particular Sunday for us to have s nice cup of tea!

The surrounding housing estate is simply dreadful. Dull. I'm sorry if you live there. There is no soul to these very British House-Groups. My own personal carbuncles.
Chart Gunpowder Mills (when you can find it), is very compact and quite exquisite. The staff are only too happy to explain it all, so do check on opening times. They're pretty eccentric there.
Worth spending twenty minutes, then go to The Shipwrights Arms over a mile away, on the marshes. A great compensation for living hereabouts, in my silly opinion.

Best appreciated with a guide
Jul 2014 • Friends
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 things to life.
