Graveney, together with its associated hamlet of Goodnestone, is a quiet rural English village located some two miles northeast of Faversham, surrounded by rich farmland and grazing.
North of Graveney along the south bank of The Swale is the South Swale Nature Reserve and SSSI.
The Saxon Shore Way public footpath follows the top of the sea wall for the whole length of the reserve, about three miles in total.

All Saints Church
All Saints Church, Graveney, was started in Norman times, but it is mainly 14th century. The connection between the village of Graveney and the Christian Church can be traced back to a time before the Domesday Survey.
The Graveney Boat, a rare example of an Anglo-Saxon clinker-built boat, is more than 1,000 years old, and is of international importance as the only vessel of her kind to have survived.
It was built circa 930 and was discovered in 1970 during widening and deepening of Hammond's Drain on Graveney Marshes. The boat, largely intact, was originally 40ft long and 10ft wide.
