The hamlet of Chillenden in East Kent, UK, lies midway between the historic cathedral city of Canterbury and the gateway port of Dover.  It lies in the rural landscape on the edge of the North Downs, surrounded by some wonderful English countryside.  It has a population of about 120 people living in 45 houses.  There is a church, a working farm, a village hall, a pond, a brilliant pub, and a windmill.

The beautiful Grade II* listed 12th century All Saints Church is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 5pm.  For more information please visit the All Saints page.  Services 2nd & 4th Sundays.

Fly-tipping: report it

Unfortunately there has been an increase recently in fly-tipping in our area.  Whilst this is a frustratingly annoying scourge, there is at least  a very good and responsive reporting system in place at Dover District Council.  If you see any fly-tipping, please report it here.
