Church Whitfield is a village just north of Dover in Kent, England.[1][2] It is virtually part of, and included in the population, of the larger area of Whitfield and, like it, part of the town area of Dover. Part of the village is called Pineham.

St. Peter's Church is a 10th Century Saxon Church largely rebuilt in Norman times, though the church is first mentioned in 762 AD. It was restored and enlarged in 1894 by Ewan Christian.
