the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

Wichling is a civil parish within the local government District of Maidstone, in England. The parish lies approximately 10 miles (16 km) to the east of the town of Maidstone. It lies near the top of the ridge of the North Downs and consists mainly of isolated farms and houses: the population is therefore small in number.

Wichling is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Winchelsmere". There is a parish church, its earliest part dating to the 12th century, dedicated to St Margaret.
