Chilham Village - Video

A short movie taking you around the Village and Lake

This video starts off with the famous Chilham Castle, take you to the Church, down the narrow lanes with their period Cottages then onward to Chilham Mill and the large Lake.

Much of the Lakeside is now shut to the Public but a footpath takes you along the west side, a fine start to a gentle ramble from Chilham to Chartham or onward to Canterbury.

The Lake is reknown for it's large Carp, the largest of which was known as 'Benson' weighing in at 64lb (29kg), the fish died recently at the recorded age of 25.
