Welcome to Chillenden

The hamlet of Chillenden in East Kent, UK, lies midway between the historic cathedral city of Canterbury and the busy port of Dover.  It lies in the rural landscape on the edge of the North Downs chalklands, surrounded by some wonderful English countryside.  It has a population of about 100 people living in 45 houses.  There is a church, a working farm, a village hall, a pond, a brilliant pub, and a windmill.

We are continually adding content and improving the design of this site.  If there is something you would like to see added, included or updated, please get in touch
