Boxley is a village in the Maidstone District of Kent, England. It lies below the slope of the North Downs approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) northeast of the centre of Maidstone town. The larger civil parish of Boxley has a population of 7,144 (2001 census), increasing to 9,554 at the 2011 Census, and extends to the north and east of the town including the settlements of Boxley itself, Grove Green, most of Weavering Street, Sandling and the southern extremities of Walderslade and Lordswood at the top of Blue Bell Hill.
The M2 and M20 motorways cross the parish to the north and south of the village and the High Speed 1 railway line passes to the south of the village in cuttings and tunnel. Despite being so close to Maidstone and two motorways, the village is surrounded by woodland, and still retains a village feel. The ruins of Boxley Abbey are located here. The parish church is dedicated to St Mary and All Saints.
The church and the Abbey Barn are both Grade I listed buildings and the site of the abbey is a scheduled monument. Boxley Abbey House, Parsonage Farm and St Andrew’s Chapel in Boxley and Weavering Manor in Weavering Street are all Grade II* listed. The Pilgrims’ Way trackway and the North Downs Way pass through the parish. The village was the filming location for the film version of Porridge.
Within the parish are the Museum of Kent Life and Vinters Valley Nature Reserve. A 19th-century granary from Boxley was dismantled and re-erected at the museum.
“Vinters” was a country house and home to the Whatman family until is was demolished in the 1950s.Susanna Whatman was the first of her family to manage the house and the guide she wrote was published in 1952 – about 200 years after her birth.

The best way to avoid problems with your septic tank system is to stick to a regular maintenance schedule. While there are no hard or fast rules on how often this should be as it depends on a variety of factors, at a bare minimum, you will want to arrange to have your septic tank pumped, cleaned and inspected at least once every 12 months.
When does a septic tank need emptying?
If you’ve noticed a bad smell in the area close to your septic system (more noticeable during the summer months), or have noticed the ground around where your septic tank is buried has become sodden, this is usually a tell-tale sign that your septic tank needs emptying. Another early warning sign of a full or backed-up septic tank is that your drains have started to drain slower than usual.
As we mentioned earlier, if it’s been over a year since you’ve last had your tank emptied, it would be a good idea to book a septic tank cleaning just to be safe and help avoid future troubles and costly bills.
