Sevington is a contiguous suburb of Ashford, Kent in England. It is mostly business/market use and was once a very small rural village so keeps a community civil parish council for its few suburban streets.
Geography and economy
Much of Sevington's small tract of land is covered by Ashford business park areas which are connected with Ashford by post town status and by its road network - linking them closely with Ashford.
The village/suburb of Willesborough bounds Sevington (along its long north-west border), the new Finberry neighbourhood is to the south in Mersham but with its own amenities. High Speed 1, adjoining the ordinary railway, passes through the parish.
The geographically small village is recorded in the Domesday Book. St Mary's Church is the village's Norman parish church and has been altered at least two times, first around 1200 and a second time in the 14th century. The church is cut off from the village by the building of the Southern Orbital road. The village had a population of about 113 in 1872.
