Welcome to CAMRA in Maidstone and Mid Kent

We are the Maidstone and Mid Kent branch of CAMRA.

Our area spans between West Peckham in the west, Lenham in the east, Hucking in the north and Hawkhurst in the south. It includes areas such as West Malling, Cranbrook, Sutton Valence, Staplehurst and, of course, Maidstone itself.
