Fairfield is part of the Church of England parish of Brookland and Fairfield on Walland Marsh (part of Romney Marsh) in the Shepway District of Kent, England. Until 1934 it was a civil parish, but was then absorbed into the civil parish of Snargate. The area lies west of the village of Brookland.

The area is most notable for the isolated church of St Thomas a Becket, a Grade I listed building, in the Romney Deanery. (Illustration in Wikipedia)
