Bore Place

Home to the Commonwork Trust, Bore Place is an active farm that is at the forefront of regenerative farming, producing food in a way that is sustainable and beneficial to humans and nature.

Bore Place is free to visit and open all year round for walks around the fields and woodlands of the farm.

There is also a milking parlour where visitors can see the dairy cows being milked, and the ‘Farm Gate’ shop where you can buy the organic produce of the farm.  

Although there might not be much geology being talked about here, Bore Place exemplifies what Geoparks are all about in the way that they work to achieve sustainable development. So much of what goes on at Bore Place makes a positive contribution to so many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and this Geosite is an exemplar of how our landscape can be farmed and managed for the benefit of people and all aspects of our natural world. 

About Geosites

Geosites are sites of geological interest across the aspiring UNESCO Cross-Channel Global Geopark, where people can visit and interact with our geological heritage. This wide range of sites will offer varying opportunities and values including cultural, heritage, scientific, educational, and aesthetic.

About the aspiring UNESCO Cross-Channel Global Geopark

Hundreds of thousands of years ago a catastrophic flood swept away the chalk ridge connecting Dover and Calais, carving out the white cliffs of Dover and starting Britain’s history as an island.

Did you know the Kent and French coasts are actually still connected today by the layer of chalk which runs below the Channel?

In celebration of the chalk and the channel, we are working to secure UNESCO Cross-Channel Global Geopark status for the Kent Downs National Landscape together with our neighbouring protected landscape in France; the Parc Naturel Regional des Caps et Marais d’Opale.

The Geopark will include both the protected landscapes and the Channel connecting them, recognising and celebrating the geological connection between us.
