CHARING At the heart of Charing is the old Archbishop’s Palace, once used by Archbishops of Canterbury, but now a private house. The green – a favourite place to sit in summer – overlooks the market place, where a modern library has replaced the old pig slaughterhouse. The main street with its Elizabethan and Georgian-faced houses is a whole town in miniature. It has a butcher, an interiors shop, two grocers, a watchmaker, a post office and a doctor’s surgery. Charing likes to be thought of not just as a pretty village, but as a hard-working one, too. A Grade Two listed, three-bedroom terraced cottage in the high street could cost £230,000; a large, family-size period house from £370,000 to £420,000; a modern four-bedroom detached house £330,000. The village has a primary school and a host of clubs and societies. The WI holds a weekly market in part of the Archbishop’s Palace.

Good for: a rather special village, walks on the Downs, Kentish grammar schools.
