Kit's Coty House and its neighbour, Little Kit's Coty House, are the remains of two megalithic 'dolmen' burial chambers. Kit's Coty is the larger of the two monuments, with three uprights and a massive capstone, while the smaller, Little Kit's Coty (also known as the Countless Stones), is now a jumble of sarsens.
Although the origins of their names are unknown, what is certain is that long barrows such as these were initially constructed during the early Neolithic period to act as communal burial sites.
Both are located in an open field offering fantastic views across the North Downs and Medway Valley.
Open any reasonable time during daylight hours.
Please Be Aware: Both sites are located in open fields with no shelter
Dogs: Dogs on leads are welcome
