Archbishops’ Palace, Charing

Charing is a small village roughly half way between Maidstone and Canterbury just north of the M20. It was a manor belonging to Canterbury and the Archbishops had a palace there for accommodation in their travels around the See.

After the Dissolution the buildings became a farm, and the great hall was used as a barn. The owner wants the palace to be taken over by a Trust to run it for the benefit of the community. You can keep up with developments through the website (button on the left)
