Kemsley today is a suburb of Sittingbournemarker in Kentmarker, Englandmarker. At the end of the 19th century it was simply a row of cottages beside a brickworks [477718] until, in 1924 when Frank Lloyd built the new Paper mill. The site was served by the creek which allowed the transport of raw materials to the site. At the same time he built a "garden village" (cp Garden city movement) to house his employees; that village comprises much of Kemsley today.

The once narrow gauge industrial railway which served the factory by carrying raw materials has now become the Sittingbourne and Kemsley Light Railwaymarker, a tourist attraction. Nearby are the remains of a medieval fortified manor house: Castle Rough [477719].

Kemsley railway stationmarker is on the Sheerness Line.
