Woodnesborough is a village in East Kent two miles west of Sandwich.

Its name is believed to originate from Woden's Borough (O.E. Wodnes burh) after Anglo-Saxon god Woden (the English cognate of the Norse Odin, known in Proto-Germanic as Wodanaz).

The village was once served by East Kent Light Railway and can now be reached by bus services from Sandwich.

There was also a post office, which closed down at the end of January 2008. Template:Dover
