Getting here

Waltham is set in some of the most spectacular countryside in East Kent; on the top of the North Downs south of Canterbury.

The village has been associated in the past with the Knights Templar and was originally called Temple Waltham, with a Chantry next to the beautiful 13th century church dedicated to St Bartholomew. The church´s beauty rests in its simplicity of design and its unrivaled location looking down from its vantage point along the Duckpitt Valley. We have a peal of six bells with an active group of bell ringers. The church often hosts wine and wisdom evenings and open gardens as fund-raising events, with Lent lunches specifically aimed at raising funds for overseas projects. Village teas are held once a month in the village hall.
