Wainscott is a small village bordering the Hoo Peninsula, in Kent. It is in the civil parish of Frindsbury Extra, in the Medway Unitary Authority, that is Medway City Council. By 1950 it had been absorbed into the neighbouring residential areas of Strood. Wainscott itself is located immediately next to Frindsbury, and is surrounded by beautiful agricultural land, as well as ancient woodlands. It is speculated that the name is derived from the OE meaning "Wagonner Cot" or "Wagon Shed".The Place Names of Kent, Judith Glover, 1976, Batsford. ISBN 0905270 614] Wainscott is now bypassed to the east by the 'Wainscott Eastern Bypass' and to the north by 'Wainscott Northern Bypass'. These roads, both named the A289, lead traffic from the A2 to the Medway Tunnel. These two roads meet at the 'Four Elms Roundabout', where the A228 climbs 'Four Elms Hill' and onto the Hoo Peninsula, where the A228 becomes the Ratcliffe Highway, that then passes the Deangate Ridge Golf Club on the left and branches off to the right on the Main Road into Hoo itself. At the top of Four Elms Hill is the village of Chattenden, that has much MOD Land, especially in and around Chattenden Army Barracks.

Wainscott is situated within the parish of Frindsbury Extra.
