Elmsted is a village and civil parish[1] in the Shepway District of Kent, England. It is located west of Stone Street (the B2068), the Roman road which today takes traffic between Canterbury and Lympne. Within the parish are the settlements of Bodsham, North Leigh and Evington. There are six elected members of the Parish Council.

The Anglican church is dedicated to St James the Great and is Grade I listed with an unusual wooden medieval belfry on the tower.[2] The local school is Bodsham Church of England Primary School.[3]
