Challock Village

Welcome to the Challock village website where you will find information on all our village has to offer.

Challock sits high on the North Downs above Ashford in Kent in a pretty and peaceful rural setting within an area of outstanding natural beauty and the well kept Lees forms a picturesque centre and helps give us a classic English Village look. With a population of around 830 Challock is a small village but has some big ideas and as with every good village has a strong community spirit.

One of our greatest assets is our primary school which has a superb reputation and is oversubscribed for places every year. As well as producing excellent academic results the children at the school are exceptionally well behaved and they contribute greatly to village life.

We have a large number of businesses within the village, further details of which can be found within our web pages, and these provide both employment and local services to both villagers and visitors alike.

Whatever your reason for visiting our website I hope that it is informative.

Challock is a special village and those who live here are proud to call it home.
