The Griffin’s Head pub is set in a beautiful Kent Hall House.  It is the social heart of the village where locals from all walks of life come to meet up, chat, and generally put the world to rights.  However it too is now closed due to the current health emergency.  At the time of writing it is unlikely that the regular and highly popular vintage car rally  normally held on the 1st Sunday of each will take place.  Click here for further Enquiries.

Chillenden Windmill is now closed for the winter and should re-open in May 2020, when it will be open on Sundays until September from 2 - 4.30pm. Local volunteer guides will be on hand to give you an interpretive tour round what is one of only 3 historic post mills in Kent. Admission is free but donations welcome.  Click here for Enquiries.

Village diary….. updated 23 May

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 100 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 12th century All Saints Church is currently closed until further notice.  For more information please visit the All Saints page.
