Lat=51.2814, Lon=0.5193 These are the coodinates but when I try to look it up on Google earth it will not find it. (I live in Maidstone,Kent, England the postcode is me142rj)

I am not able to zoom right in, after I get to about 10,000 it remains blury so although you can just about make out a block of houses, there is no definition, am i doing something wrong?

You just happen to live in one of those areas that does not have a lot of high-res imagery available. Over time that may change...

You can usually tell what areas are going to have more detail even when you are zoomed miles out. They tend to be blocks of gray-brown and are primarily in high-population density areas. Pan over to London and you'll see the difference when far away.
