In these pages I am attempting to outline the history of Challock using all available documents and with the help of a large number of kind people from both the village and outside.  I freely acknowledge their huge contribution without which this history could not be written.
 As further facts emerge more detailed history will be added, century by century, decade by decade and can be viewed by clicking on the relevant menus.

A history of Challock by Deryck M Sutton

As this is a history site, it has been designed around a timeline menu.  This enables you to pick a period and see the stories and pictures which apply to that particular time.   Some articles can not be easily attached to a definite time and so these are shown here on the home page by their subject.

I am particularly keen to record old documents and photographs before they are perhaps lost forever. Do you have any that I could record?

There is an excellent reference history of Challock on the British History Online website.  See:  http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=63422
