Hackington is a semi-rural village and civil parish immediately north of Canterbury in Kent, England the main community of which is Tyler Hill. In earlier periods it was sometimes known as St Stephen's.
A site here was projected in the 1180s by Archbishop Baldwin as the site of a new college, which was to contain the archiepiscopal cathedra and stalls for the king and the bishops of the province of Canterbury but the monks of Canterbury procured a veto for the scheme from Pope Innocent III.
The population rose by more than 10 per cent, from 522 in 2001 to 589 in 2011.
