Welcome to St Margaret’s At Cliffe Parish Council’s Website
Updated 15th October 2023
St Margaret’s at Cliffe is a small village, located near to Dover in the east of Kent. St. Margaret’s at Cliffe is a place of natural beauty, historical significance, and community spirit. It is a great destination for those seeking a peaceful and picturesque coastal retreat while still having easy access to larger towns like Deal and Dover.
One of the village’s major draws is its natural beauty. The White Cliffs of Dover, a symbol of Britain’s coastline, are nearby and can be explored via the South Foreland Lighthouse. There are also several scenic coastal walks and opportunities for birdwatching along the coast.
The village has a rich history, dating back to Roman times. Its proximity to the coast made it strategically important throughout history, and during World War II, it played a significant role as a lookout point for potential invasions.
The village is made up of four areas, the old village St Margaret’s at Cliffe, grouped around a 12th century village church, the residential area of Nelson Park, St Margaret’s Bay and Westcliffe. Click Here for Google Map.
