Geocache Description:

Iwade is a village and civil parish 2 miles (3.2 km) north of the town of Sittingbourne in the Kent. It lies on the old route of the A249 road to the Isle of Sheppey but was bypassed when the road was upgraded to a dual carriageway in 2006. 

According to Edward Hasted, in 1798, the manor of Warde, was within the hundred of Teynham. It had sixteen houses, and about 60 or 70 inhabitants.

Although small, Iwade has a primary school, nursery, health centre, village hall, public house and post office and village shop. The village church is dedicated to All Saints and is a Grade I Listed Building. It is within the diocese of Canterbury, and deanery of Sittingborne.

The village also features the Sittingbourne Speedway track, which offers speedway training facilities for riders all over the country. It was the base of the speedway team Sittingbourne Crusaders who raced in the Conference League sporadically from 1995 until 2008.

In 2014, during the development of new homes, a Henge was discovered.

In February 2016 the village council erected its flag pole on the mound, as you enter the village which you can see from the village sign.
