Barnfield Pit, Swanscombe


Dear all who may want to visit the site of the Swanscombe Skull,

I was born and bread in that wonderful little town and growing up, barnfield pit or "the skull site" as it is locally know was a place of great fun and yes as you noticed it has been run down and mistreated over the years. That is down to dartford council who ignor this sprirtual place.

I noticed from earlier posts that visitors were disapointed with what they found and god only knows where those directions came from.

If you want to observe the original skull fragments they have been moved to the Natural History Museum in london and i once had the pleasure of viewing the originals on a school trip there. but for those who hate london as i do you can see duplicates in the foyer at Swanscombe Leisure center which is adjacent to barnfield pit.

For those who wish to vist the address is

Swanscombe Leisure Center
Craylands Lane, Swanscombe, Kent DA10 0LP

There is also a car park avalible and a Bar within the center its self.

I will post more at a later date on my adventures in the pit.
