One of the Chillingbourne locations was the village of Fordwich.



Fordwich was once a port town and part of the medieval defence system known as the "Cinque Ports."

The beautiful Fordwich Manor House was the Colpeper Institute. It is officially listed as dating from the 17th century. However, more recent carbon dating of timbers indicate a date of mid 16th century. The property is valued at £895,000 and was recently on the market.

The George & Dragon (one of the Hand of Glory locations) was where Michael Powell stayed during the production of ACT.
