It is situated next to Blean Woods and close to the A2, which gives access to the motorway network. There are many scores of old buildings either side of the main street along with various local shops. This main street forms part of the Roman Road from London to Canterbury and Dover where pilgrims passed through on their way to Becket's shrine at Canterbury. It is a designated conservation area.
