Chiddingstone
The National Trust bought the entire village of Chiddingstone,Kent. including the church, houses and post office, in 1939 to ensure its preservation. The houses in the village are generally of the 16th and 17th-century. However, the building that is now the post office is mentioned as far back as 1453 and many of the other buildings probably took materials from earlier settlements. Over 70 per cent of the buildings in Chiddingstone are more than 200 years old.
