For detailed history of Nonington visit Clive Webb's The Old Parish of Nonington.
The village is central to some excellent walks and heritage trails. Our own historic church was built over 900 years ago. Fredville, St Albans Court and Knowlton Court cover much of the land surrounding the village. The villages of Barfrestone, Goodnestone - where Jane Austen used to stay, Eastry where Lord Nelson was a guest at Heronden House and Broome Park, the home of Lord Kitchener, are just a few miles away.

Nonington In Bloom carried out a successful Tulip planting of 500 bulbs in November 2017. These are red and some are coming into bloom now. We expect to plant another batch this autumn.We will soon start our summer planting programme in the existing sites. Now that the new village sign is in place with all it's furniture just before the first house coming down Mill Lane a new bed will be established. Hopefully a person to water and maintain will be found. A new planter has been established outside the church wall opposite Farthingales.The Arch leading down to the playground is almost complete and the planting of 6 new David Austin climbing roses is being carried out on Monday 16th April. Four will be peach and two cream. Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday 24th April to finalised the details of our 2018 Spring BBQ to be held at the Dolphins on Sunday 13th May. We are only 12 strong and are always looking out for new members, only a few hours a year is required.
