Welcome to the website of Stalisfield Parish Council. The parish of Stalisfield is situated within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty some 175 metres above sea level. The countryside around Stalisfield is mixed woodland and farmland.
The widely scattered parish comprises only eighty two dwellings and is centred on Stalisfield Green, the venue of the annual Village Fete. Stalisfield Green offers wide views northwards to the Thames Estuary framed by the Isle of Sheppey and Whitstable. On a clear day on the far horizon are the turbines of the Kentish Flats Wind Farm. A large part of Stalisfield Green has been designated a Conservation Area.
The small but beautiful church of St Mary is located around a mile away from the Stalisfield Green. Stalisfield church is a typical Norman 12th or 13th Century church built using local flint from the North Downs with a tower and spacious interior. The church records can be traced back to 1699 and a register of the graves and memorials in the graveyard goes back as far as 1920.
Stalisfield Village Hall is located on the village green in a Conservation Area within an officially designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Built in 2014, the rear of the Hall leads onto a decked patio area and then onto the lawn overlooking a stunning view of miles of the Kent countryside.
The hall a wonderful community building and is available for village events and for private hire for classes, meetings and functions. For full details of this venue please click on the link below:
The award winning Plough Inn public house and restaurant is also situated on the village green. It offers a varied menu comprising lighter lunches Tuesday to Saturday, a Hearty Roast on Sundays and a superb Dinner menu in the evenings. Built between 1350 and 1450, it is a fine example of a Wealden hall house and is a Grade II listed building.
It is well worth a visit.
