On the E. side of the river, which passes through this place, the soil is a strong clay, alternating with shingle and flints; on the western side it is of superior quality. The surface is very hilly, and the scenery pleasing, with nearly 500 acres of woodland. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Canterbury, value £410, in the patronage of the archbishop. There is a district church at Crocken Hill, the living of which is a perpetual curacy, value £100, in the patronage of the archbishop.

It has a tower at the W. end surmounted by a spire, and is dedicated to St. Martin. The register commences in 1538. The parochial endowments produce about £50 per annum. The Baptists have a chapel, and there are National and British schools for boys and girls. In the vicinity of the village are some remains of a castle, said to have been built about the time of the Conquest."
