Headcorn lies in the scenic Low Weald of Kent. It is a unique landscape area with many small and pretty villages and a countryside consisting of small woodland, or copse areas and many farms with small fields and ancient hedgerows.

The village has a considerable historic background, but prides itself in keeping up with today’s developments. The earliest written records are referenced in the charters of King Wihtred and King Offa. Headcorn started in the days of the Kingdom of Kent as a den or clearing, to which pigs were driven from the northern parts of the County to feed on acorns and beech mast, in the Wealden Forest.
