Leysdown has one of the lowest rainfalls in the UK.

The coastal village Leysdown-on-Sea was noted in the Domesday book as being called Legesdun and the name is thought to be derived from the Saxon words “Leswe” (pasture) and “Dun” (hill).

A very small hamlet up to late Victorian times, it was developed a little after the arrival of the Sheppey Light Railway in 1903, though grand plans for the establishment of a large resort with hotels never materialised. The railway was closed in the 1950s.
