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.

History[edit]

A site here was projected in the 1180s by Archbishop Baldwin for 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.[2]

The eminent judge and master of the rolls Sir Christopher Hales died at Hackington in 1541, as did the poet Sarah Dixon on 23 April 1765.[3]

Demography[edit]

The population rose by more than 10 per cent, from 522 in 2001 to 589 in 2011.[4]
