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.

Once again you may have noticed the hedgerows and roads in the village are now free of litter, thanks to a group of villagers and a band of helpers from Beechgrove. The whole job took about an hour or so to complete. Thank you to all who took part.
The photo above shows the amount collected this year. On one hand it may be judged as a successful hoard - but on the other, it is a disgrace that the task was necessary in the first place.
It seems this part of Kent is blighted with litter - the edges of the A2 are probably some of the worst examples in the area! A great welcome to England for those travelling from the European continent.
