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.
