Cesspit Emptying Stoke
We have been working with customers in the village of Stoke for many years now and are delighted to provide a first-class, quality service every time. Our works vary greatly, from small to large scale.
Stoke is a civil parish on the Hoo Peninsula in Kent, England, to the south of Allhallows, on the north of the Medway Estuary. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 1,063, reducing marginally to 1,060 at the 2011 census.
The two small villages of Lower Stoke and Stoke (sometimes referred to as Upper Stoke) stand on low-lying fertile farmland that is at most 17 m above highwater. The farmland descends to the Stoke Saltings – a maze of intricate channels and small islands beloved by wading birds. The church of Saints Peter and Paul is in Stoke; it was an appendage to the Manor of Great Hoo. The building contains some Norman and Early English work dating from 1175. It has no spire.
In an Anglo-Saxon charter Stoke is referred to as “Andescohesham”. It was passed with other lands by Eadberht, son of King Wihtred of Kent to the See of Rochester for “the good of his soul and the remission of sins”. In 959, Lower Stoke, then called “Osterland”, was granted by Queen Eadgifu to Christ Church, Canterbury. In Domesday Book it is called “Estoches” and “Stoches”.
Due to its low-lying nature, Stoke has often suffered flooding, such as in 1158, 1235, 1309, 1682, and 1735 when ploughmen were swept from their fields as the sea broke through. Also, in 1791, 1854, 1874, and 1897, Stoke was cut off from the Isle of Grain for a week.
In 1720 Manor Farm was leased to Jacob Sawbridge, one of the South Sea Bubble directors.
In 1732 William Hogarth overnighted at the ‘Nag’s Head’ in Lower Stoke. Due to the shortage of beds he had to share a bed.
There was a large airship base nearby at Kingsnorth from which patrols covering the North Sea were launched during World War I. The site is now covered by Kingsnorth Power Station.
Stoke has a private unlicensed airfield, home to stoke flying club and previously part of Medway Microlights, and a number of private microlights and social clubs. There flying school based at the airfield teaching students to fly flex wing and fixed wing microlights. Stoke airfield is renowned in the aviation community as being a particularly challenging airfield to fly from. It is unique in its topography as it is situated parallel to marshes of the river Medway on one side of the runway. On the other side of the runway is an active rail line and high tension electricity pylons. The runway also has a curve along its entire length of approx 400 metres. Most general aviation pilots consider stoke airfield a place to land at least once. Common consensus is if a pilot can land safely at Stoke airfield then all other airfields are relatively straight forward in comparison.
In November 2011, Lord Foster published proposals to improve the transport system of South East England. Under these proposals, called the Thames Hub, new high-speed rail lines would be built connecting Kent and Europe with North London, and the North East and North West of England. The scheme would also involve the remodelling of the Thames Estuary, by the construction of a four-runway airport on the Isle of Grain, partially on land reclaimed from the estuary but including land at Allhallows and Lower Stoke. This plan is controversial. Residents highlight hazards caused the presence of the wreck of the SS Richard Montgomery with its 1400 tonnes of explosives, just off the Nore, and the natural gas terminals which import and temporarily store 20% of the UKs natural gas. In addition there are 300,000 birds that breed along the flight path. Aviation specialists point to the difficulty in fitting another airport in this crowded airspace.

Many people confuse a cesspool and a cesspit with a septic tank. While they both provide the same function, which is to collect wastewater and sewage from properties that are not connected to the mains sewer.
A cesspit differs to a septic tank in that they don’t treat the sewage nor do they have an outlet to allow the liquid part of the waste to drain away to a soakaway. Simply put, all the waste that goes into a cesspit, stays in the cesspit, which is why cesspits require more regular emptying compared to a septic tank.
Also, the costs of operating and maintaining a cesspit typically make them unsuitable for domestic use. On average. the annual costs to empty a cesspit can run anywhere between £2,000 to £8,000 in emptying charges alone. Not to mention the fact that many homes just don’t have the space required to install a cesspit. An average 3-4 bedroom home would require a tank capacity of upwards of 40,000 litres, resulting in a tank over 10 metres long and 2 metres wide!
Cesspits and cesspools can also be quite smelly compared to septic tanks as they require venting to allow trapped sewer gases to escape.
HOW OFTEN DOES A CESSPIT NEED TO BE EMPTIED in Stoke?
This will depend on the level of use, and size of your tank. A cesspit will typically require emptying more often than a Septic tank as there is no treatment of the waste, it is simply held in the tank until it is time to be emptied.
Cesspits will typically need to be emptied every 45 days or so, you may have a cesspit alarm that will tell you when it is time to empty it.
