Chartham
Chartham village is 4 miles west of Canterbury, located on the River Stour which once provided the power for the paper mills. The river provided power for the paper mills until some point before 1955. The name literally means ‘Village on rough ground’, and the word "Chart" is also found in other villages in Kent with this meaning. Paper making has been a major occupation for the last 625 years; the mill dates from the late eighteenth century.
Chartham is located on the Great Stour river and vale of the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its paper mill specialises in the production of tracing paper.
The church of St Mary the Virgin, built in approximately 1294, is located next to the village green and is remarkable for containing the oldest peal of bells in Kent.
