Cumberland Avenue
Cumberland Avenue
Shepway is a suburb of Maidstone. It lies to the south of Mote Park, and to the east of Loose Road (A229) and Sutton Road (A274). The suburb takes its name from Shepway Court a country house located where the road of that name is today.
Construction of the suburb started in the 1930s with the building of South Park Road. The majority of the suburb was constructed as a council estate by Maidstone Borough Council in stages after World War II. The original grid of roads laid out for the council estate after World War II bear names of English counties (Northumberland Road, Cambridge Crescent, Hampshire Drive, Rutland Way and Nottingham Avenue, Lancashire Road, Suffolk Road etc).
