Public transport and Wealden Wheels

There are regular bus services running along the A20 east into Ashford and west to Charing and beyond, including at Potters Corner, the end of Watery Lane and Tutt Hill. There are currently no routes serving other parts of the parish.

However, the Wealden Wheels is a not for profit Community Transport company providing flexible and affordable transport to groups and organisations in rural villages around Ashford in Kent, where transport options are restricted. It is based in Pluckley and has been operating a small fleet of minibuses (two of which are adapted to carry disabled passengers), since April 2004. For a modest annual membership fee local groups, clubs, schools, other organisations and families can hire their minibuses, either on a self-drive basis or with one of their volunteer drivers.

The nearest mainline train station serving routes to London and the coast is a few miles away in the village of Charing. In nearby Ashford there is a high speed rail service to London St Pancras (38 mins) and direct services to the continent via Eurostar.
