The Parish

Welcome to the Waltham village web site which is for those who live, work, or even do both in Waltham and the surrounding area. We hope that you find it a helpful information source and a means of keeping in touch with village activities and daily life in our part of Kent. We invite you to browse our pages and hope that you find something of interest.

For those who have perhaps reached this site while searching the Web, Waltham is set in some of the most spectacular countryside in Southern England, above a valley of the North Downs within the Weald of Kent. It is situated only a few minutes from the historic city of Canterbury and 20 minutes from the Channel Tunnel.

It is a surprisingly unspoilt area considering how close it is to London and the recent over-development of much of the Southeast England. A visit here is like a trip back in time, farming is still the main industry and most of the housing is still grouped around the farms and changed little over the centuries.
