Molash is a small parish comprised of some 90 homes and approximately 240 people. It is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) nestling on the picturesque North Downs and close to Canterbury, Ashford and Faversham.
Molash is a quiet and scattered parish surrounded by arable farmland but with the famous King’s Wood forest on the doorstep. The forest is popular with walkers seeking a sight of deer and many varieties of birds.www.friendsofkingswood.org is the link for more information. It is also believed that the acres of woodland are sometimes home to a “big cat or cats” such as leopards. Sightings have been reported along with the discovery of the remains of deer. More information on Kent Big Cat Research can be found at www.kentbigcats.blogspot.com which is the website of Neil Arnold, lecturer and researcher.
A War Memorial is situated on the small village green and has been refurbished to make it a suitable memorial to the fallen. Names that had been missed off have also been added now. Two benches complement the memorial and provide a resting point for walkers.
Molash boasts the obligatory medieval church (St. Peter’s, 13th century) photographed here in Spring & Winter, welcoming old coaching-inn, The George, which has won numerous awards for its food and a village hall, exterior photo and interior when beautifully dressed for a wedding reception; all well worth a visit.
Parish Council meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 7.30 pm in the village hall, Pound Lane. If you intend to come along, please check first with one of the Councillors or the Clerk to ensure a meeting is being held.
