Village Location

Nestling in the Weald of Kent (the south east County of England, commonly called 'The Garden of England'), Staplehurst lies within easy reach of London to the north west and Dover to the East. The area is becoming more populated and commercialised because of the Channel Tunnel and its link to London and beyond. The A229 through Staplehurst is the primary route connecting Maidstone in the north with the southern seaside town of Hastings. Maidstone is the County Town of Kent. Parts of the surrounding coutryside still include hop gardens & the oast houses that process the hops. You may wish to take a look at the street map, but don't forget to come back to follow the links to other local Kent town and village web sites.  An ordnance survey map showing the boundaries of the parish can be seen on Maidstone Borough Council's website at http://meetings.maidstone.gov.uk/documents/s18710/staplehurstparish.pdf.pdf
