Newington has been at the heart of history for more than 2,000 years.
Sitting between Canterbury and Rochester on one of the most important routes to and from continental Europe, there's evidence of humans sharing the land with mammoths and of a busy community even before the Romans.
We're delighted to share it.

Newington History Group is here to research, promote and help protect the history and heritage of Newington and the surrounding area.
The historical society was founded by Thelma and Graham Dudley (who have lived in the village for many years) and much of the information on this site comes from Thelma's dedication to researching and recording our village history in her several books.
We love to share our passion and hope that you find plenty to interest you in this website.
