Wye with Hinxhill Parish Council
Working for Wye - past, present and future
The parish of Wye with Hinxhill covers 2,410 hectares, much of which is in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Most of the 2,560 residents live in the historic village of Wye. The shops and facilities in the village serve about 8,600 people.
The parish also has outlying hamlets in Hinxhill, Naccolt, Withersdane and Pickersdane, and several ancient manors and farmsteads in the fertile valley on either side of the Kentish Stour. This natural chalk stream flows through a gap in the scarp slope of the North Downs to Canterbury and the Cinque Port of Sandwich.
The Wye National Nature Reserve is a mile east of the village. The reserve is also designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) primarily to protect 345 acres of rare species-rich chalk downland. Broad Downs and Wye Crown offer some of the best walks and panoramic views in Kent.
