About the location

CHURCH WHITFIELD

Dover 4 miles; Deal 7 miles; Sandwich 8 miles; Folkestone 10 miles; Canterbury 15 miles.

Church Whitfield is part of the village of Whitfield and can claim ancient roots with evidence of both Roman and Saxon settlements. The village church is dedicated to St Peter, a 10th century Saxon church which was largely rebuilt in Norman times, though the church is first mentioned in 762 AD. The village has a pub and Post Office, hairdresser and takeaway. With magnificent views all around, Whitfield village is nestled in the Kent countryside, where footpaths and bridleway criss-cross the lanes and hedges enveloping fields bursting with crops that make this area worthy of being named the "Garden of England". The area around Whitfield is ideal for walkers, ramblers and cyclists. In WWII Winston Churchill was pictured as he visited a plane crash site in a local field near Whitfield, and villagers still speak of it today and of the airfield used during the Battle of Britain that ran through the farmlands. You cannot visit this part of Kent without a trip to Dover, with its gateway port and regular ferry trips to the Continent. Stroll along the promenade and inspect the figures of James Bond and others made famous by Ian Fleming who lived at St Margaret at Cliffe, a village that lies between Dover and Kingsdown. Indeed 007 came from the number of the bus that runs past and is still the same number is use today! Whitfield is the perfect place to stay to enjoy coastlines, beaches, quaint Kent villages, championship golf courses and the stunning countryside.
