Location

The Site sits to the North of the Etchinghill Golf Course (which extends further south as far as Canterbury Road) and comprises 2.1 hectares of land.

The Site is located on the eastern side of Broad Street, to the south of its junction with Greenbanks, and at the southern end of the settlement of Lyminge (lying within the settlement boundary for Lyminge).

Broad Street forms part of the principal road network through Lyminge and is a strategic link between the village and Folkestone to the south and Canterbury to the north.

To the north-western corner of the Site is New Lyminge Doctor’s Surgery. Immediately north of the Site is Red House Lane, where the boundary is bounded by mature hedgerows and trees. To the eastern boundary of the Site is a boundary of hedgerow and trees, cut through by East Brook. The other side of this is the cutting for the now disused Elham Valley Railway, with a detached residential dwelling and farm beyond. The western boundary of the Site fronts Broad Street, which has a footpath and grass verge.

The Site is located within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (‘AONB’), a Special Landscape Area, and a Groundwater Source Protection Zone. The Site also lies partially within an Area of Archaeological Potential.

A public footpath is located to the southwestern boundary of Broad Street House and exits onto Broad Street. Broad Street House, which is a Grade II listed building, is located approximately 125m to the southwest of the Site.
