Weald is a village of about 1,200 people lying on the Low Weald, in gentle rolling countryside just south of Sevenoaks, Kent. The village and its surroundings are in the Metropolitan Green Belt and are entirely within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Part of the village has also been designated a Special Landscape Area. The escarpment of the Greensand Ridge on the northern edge of the village boundary is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and the area also features Sites of Nature Conservation Interest.

Within the village, the green and some of its surrounding buildings and trees form a Conservation Area. Close to the green is Long Barn, the listed house famous for the garden created by Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson and later enhanced by their friend Edwin Lutyens.

While there is no high street as such, the area around the green, bounded on the north side by the thriving primary school, serves as the heart of an active community. As well as a variety of sports clubs and scouts and associated activities for young people, there are societies devoted to history, art and gardening. More than 50 volunteers keep the community shop and cafe running, while there is also a thriving pub and a busy general garage.

It is little wonder that Weald is popular with walkers, cyclists and general visitors from Sevenoaks, London and beyond.
