The land comprises 183 acres of productive arable land and 2 acres of tracks and woodland belts split across three large fields. The land has been farmed under a traditional cereals rotation.
At its highest point, beside Upper Digges Place, the land lies at 105 metres above sea level, gently sloping away from this point to the east and into the Kent Downs to the west. The North Downs Way follows a central track running through the centre of the land, parallel to the A2, providing all fields with good access for agricultural machinery.
The soil is a mixture of Grades 2 and 3 on the Agricultural Land Classification Maps. The majority of the soils are a Coombe 1 association which are well-drained, lime-rich and of a fine silt over chalk.
The Land at Upper Digges Farm is located south east of the cathedral city of Canterbury between the villages of Barham and Aylesham. These villages provide a range of local amenities including shops and public houses and in Aylesham, there is a train station.
The land is well accessed with the A2 trunk road forming the southern border and the Adisham Road in the east. The principal access is off the Adisham Road, beside Aylesham Cemetery, providing entry into Adisham Bank field, whilst another access into Ileden Downs field, is from a private lane which links directly on to the A2.
