Eythorne is a civil parish and small village of about 2000 homes, located 6.3 miles NNW of Dover in Kent.There is currently 10000 (approx.) people living there! .It holds many historical attributes. Situated a few miles away from Dover beach it offers so many articles of evidence of the war, and although a quiet area. Closely in touch with neighbouring village Shepherdswell, together they provide a historical trip that can show the area under the influence of the war. Eythorne has even got loads of coal mines.

"Eythorne Baptist Church" is over 450 years old and one of the first (if not the first) Baptist Church in the UK.

The village is on the East Kent Railway, a heritage railway.
