Kent Village of the year 2004
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.
