About Selling Village
With recent new-build developments in the Selling Station area, the hamlets making up the village of Selling now have a population approaching 1,000.
The village has a single country estate owned by the Swire Family and there are several farms, the largest of which is Norham Farm owned by Gaskains.
There is a peak viewpoint over the City of Canterbury and countryside to Sandwich Bay in the woodlands at The Mount in Perry Wood, which has an adjoining picnic area and walks.
Our beautiful church of St Mary has the highest architectural, Grade I, listing and is located slightly outside the heart of the village. Each stained glass lancet window is intricately decorated, with the arms of Gilbert de Clare and others dating the earliest to between 1299–1307 and the transepts of the church itself are approximately 1190 with the rest of the large structure 13th, 15th and 19th century.
Our village has a small primary school, Selling Church of England Primary School (founded 1872), for children aged 5 - 11 in academic years 1-6.
Selling is served by a small train station on the London Victoria to Dover Priory line, with good connections direct to London Victoria and to London St. Pancras via Faversham. The attractions of Canterbury - with its shopping, restaurants, theatre, and famous Cathedral World Heritage site - are eight minutes away. Medieval Faversham, one of England's most charming and historic market towns and home to great festivals, is just five minutes away. More information about train times to and from Selling can be found here at SouthEastern Rail.
