Kit's Coty House and Little Kit's Coty House

Kit's Coty House and its neighbour, Little Kit's Coty House, are the remains of two megalithic 'dolmen' burial chambers. The larger of the two monuments, Kit's Coty has three uprights and a massive capstone, while the smaller, Little Kit's Coty (also known as the Countless Stones), is now a jumble of sarsens.

Although the origins of their names are unknown, what is certain is that long barrows such as these were initially constructed during the early Neolithic period to act as communal burial sites.

Both are located in an open field offering long views across the North Downs and Medway Valley. A visit to this site is highly recommended not only for its great historical value, but also for the exquisite scenery on offer.

Please note: Dogs on leads are welcome.
