Molash is a civil parish and village in Kent, South East England with a population of about 230 people. It is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) nestling on the picturesque North Downs; on the A252 road between Canterbury (8 miles), Ashford (8m) and Faversham (8m).
Molash is a scattered rural community surrounded by farmland and a forest called King's Wood, which was historically a royal hunting forest. The hunt was for deer, and a large herd of Fallow Deer still run free in the wood. The forest is popular with walkers as the Pilgrims' Way and North Downs Way pass through the forest as they follow the ridge of the North Downs.
In the village, St. Peter's Church, built in the 13th century, with a Norman font and mostly 14th-century stained glass windows, was probably built on the site of an earlier church. The Yew trees in the churchyard are 2,000 years old.
