TEYNHAM is a sprawling village unromantically sandwiched between the A2 and the railway. It was once ten hamlets, hence its name. Though only a few trains stop here in peak hours, Teynham is very much a commuter village. Most of the houses were built during the Sixties and Seventies. A three-bedroom semi of that vintage will sell for around £170,000. A run of older, turn-of-the-century housing flanking the A2 provides two- or three-bedrooms for around £130,000. Outside the road-rail sandwich lie the hop-fields that supply the Faversham breweries.
