Pluckley and Pluckley Thorne are very close clustered neighbourhoods in the Pluckley civil parish in the Ashford district of Kent, England.GeographyThe landscape of the area itself is one of the edge of a well-drained plain with the lowest slopes of the Kent Downs to the north-west. Pluckley is mostly agricultural in land use and centred 5 miles (8 km) west of Ashford.HistoryReferences to Pluckley can be found in the Domesday Book, at which time it was a more significant settlement than the now considerably larger town of Ashford.Places of interestSurrenden ManorSurrenden Manor was the former residence of Sir Edward Dering, 1st Baronet (1598–1644), who is buried locally, and it was here that the Dering Manuscript, the earliest extant manuscript text of any Shakespearean play, was discovered. The manuscript provides a single-play version of both Part 1 and Part 2 of Henry IV. The consensus of Shakespeare scholars is that the Dering MS represents a redaction prepared around 1613, perhaps for family or amateur theatrics.Elvey FarmElvey Farm dates from 1496 and includes a collection of stables and outbuildings dating from the 16th to 18th centuries.TransportThe village, approximately 5 miles from the nearest junction of the M20 motorway, is served by Pluckley railway station, about 1.25 miles to the south. It lies on the Greensand Way long-distance walking route and is close to the Stour Valley Walk.
