Riverhead Parish is very long and narrow, extending southwards from Longford Bridges, where the A224 London Road crosses the River Darent on the edge of Dunton Green, down through the woodlands towards Weald. However, virtually the whole population (2,661 at the time of the 2007 census) lives in the area north of the A21.
