The parish of Westwell is largely rural, comprising the village itself and extending as far as Tutt Hill to the west and Sandyhurst Lane to the east.

Westwell village is a picturesque, small settlement at the foot of the Downs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. First mentioned in a Saxon document in the ninth century, it is also in the Domesday book. The centre of the village is a Conservation area, with many listed buildings and mature trees, including ancient yew trees close to St Mary's Church.

 As well as being of historic interest, the parish is a busy, thriving community with many local groups.  It has links to London and Europe, with the M20 and HS1 running through it.
