Newington enjoys a location that calls to everyone interested in history. 

East of the historic Medway Towns, west of the ancient towns of Milton and Sittingbourne, it lies on the direct routes between the Kent coast and London, between Canterbury and Rochester. 

Through this website, Newington History Group encourages everyone to understand something of their own history and the history of their area for pleasure, for understanding and to promote good communities.

We add to the information here regularly so bookmark us for future reference.
