Nonington, also, variously, Nonnington, Nunyngton, Nonnyngton, Nunnington, is a small village in the southeast corner of Kent, situated halfway between the historic city of Canterbury and the channel port town of Dover.
In 1800, Edward Hasted noted, that the church of Nonington was antiently (an old spelling of ancient), a chapel of ease to that of Wingham, and was on the foundation of the college there by Archbishop Peckham in 1286. Then the church was given to the college. In 1558, Queen Mary granted it, among others, to the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The parish of Nonington was once made up of the now separate parishes of Nonington and Aylesham. Served by the Grade I listed 'Church of St Mary'. It also has a Baptist chapel, linked to Eythorne Baptist Church.
It is home to The Bruderhof who have taken over the old Nonington College of Physical Education, previously the (Grade II listed) St. Alban's Court, the home of the Hammond family from the Reformation until the late 1930s. Nonington has its own primary school; Nonington CE Primary School.
