About this photo

This village stands alongside the River?Stour, two miles south-west of Chilham. In the main street of the village, we see a nice picket fence and some typically ivy-clad buildings. Just outside the village is the beautiful 560-acre Godmersham Park, the home down the centuries of the Valoigns, Astyns and Broadnaxes. Jane Austen was a frequent visitor here.
