Drellingore is a village in South East Kent, England.[1] It lies in the Alkham Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty between Folkestone and Dover. Although the Alkham Valley is a dry valley most of the surrounding land forms a water catchment area. Water is extracted from the chalk aquifer for use in the Dover to Folkestone area of Kent. The population is included in the civil parish of Aylsham.
