West Kingsdown services were planned on the M20 between J1 and J2, north of the Crowhurst Lane overbridge, in the 1980s. At first it and a site near Folkestone were going to be high priorities to open, but it dragged out and Maidstone spent years as the only service area. A public inquiry as it was decided Maidstone and Folkestone would be sufficient.

It was to be pursued as one of the first private initiatives.

Maidstone is 18 miles away, and Thurrock 13 miles away.
