Guardian Court, Rainham, Kent

A small retirement development of eleven properties situated off Guardian Court.

Rainham was originally a small village just north of the Thames and was mentioned in Domesday as Raineham thought to mean 'homestead or village of a man called Regna'. It remained an agricultural community for much of the middle ages and by the early 20th century most of the farmland had been turned over to market gardening. With improved communications with London new industries emerged and the town developed into an important commercial centre.

To the south of Rainham are the marshes where gravel extraction has taken place and today Rainham Marshes are a RSPB nature reserve and opened to the public in 2006. The reserve is home to many bird species and wetland plants.


Rainham is about 12 miles from Central London and about five miles south of Romford. Barking is about five miles and South Ockendon five miles. The M25 at J30 is about three miles and trains to London (Fenchurch Street) take less than half an hour.
