The South of England Rare Breeds Centre
Situated at Highlands Farm about a mile to the East of Woodchurch, The South of England Rare Breeds Centre has displays of various farm and pet animals, including pigs, cows, sheep, and goats, ducks, geese, chicken, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and chipmunks.

The farm has a children's petting barn, discovery and wildlife gardens, walk through aviary and butterfly tunnel, falconry displays, and woodland walks.

Buildings from Yonsea Farm (a model Georgian farm) were re-located to the site as a preservation project. They were saved in the late 1990's from the site of the new high speed railway line, High Speed 1.

The farm is run by The Canterbury Oast Trust, a registered charity which runs commercial operations that provide occupational opportunities for people with learning disabilities in Kent and East Sussex in England, as well as providing homes, care and educational support.
High Speed 1
High Speed 1 (originally called The Channel Tunnel Rail Link or CTRL), is a 69-mile stretch of railway linking the Channel Tunnel and St Pancras station in London. Built at a cost of 5.2 billion, the line was opened on 14th November 2007, cutting Eurostar journey times by 40 minutes, compared with the previous route which was shared with local trains, restricting the speed severely. Trains travel at speeds up to 140mph on the high speed line.

In June 2010 the government put the line up for sale for 1.5 billion.
