. . . Little Chart . . .

Within the parish boundaries is the linear settlement village centre by the old water mill and two smaller neighbourhoods less than 500m east:

  • Little Chart Forstal (the term forstal means the land in front of a farm and farmyard; cp Painters Forstal[2]). Colloquially known as The Forstal, it is home to Little Chart Cricket Club.[3]
  • Rooting Street

The river flowing eastwards, passing a long mill pond and mill on its way, is the West Stour.

The ruined church of St Mary the Virgin; destroyed in 1944 by a V1 flying bomb.

The secular property that would have had the highest grading of listed building in the parish, Surrenden Park,[4] half in Pluckley, was owned by the Dering family for over 400 years; the family estate covered about four square miles of Kent. Part of their property was Calehill Park,[5] to the north. Neither property now exists: Surrenden succumbed to fire in 1952; Calehill was demolished in 1951.
