The parish church of St Cosmas and St Damian is located in idyllic isolation on the North Downs, one mile from the modern village of Challock. It is a Norman church that was built around 1100. Challock was originally located in the immediate vicinity of the church. It moved to its current location when the villagers were given notice to quit in the late 16th century by the owner of Eastwell Park who enclosed his lands. However, the church remained as the place of worship for the relocated villagers.
