Sturry Parish Council

It is with deep sorrow that we have to announce the death of Cllr. Sharron Hogben after a short but hard fought battle with illness.
Sharron was our Chair of Planning and an active Cllr who we will all miss.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband John and all the family.
RIP Sharron.

Sturry is a village on the Great Stour river three miles northeast of Canterbury in Kent. Its large civil parish incorporates several hamlets and, until April 2019, the former 'mining village' of Hersden

Sturry lies at the old Roman junction of the road from the city to Thanet and Reculver, at the point where a fort was built to protect the crossing of the river. Sturry railway station was opened in 1848 and the line was electrified in 1962, by the South Eastern Railway; it is on the line between Canterbury West and Ramsgate. The station was until the 1860s the stagecoach point for Herne and Herne Bay. The parish boundaries are the same now as they were in 1086 as recorded in the Domesday Book.


The Parish Council represents the interests of all Sturry residents and we encourage you all to be part of the community, attend meetings and share your thoughts and ideas
