Where is Old Nonington?
The old parish of Nonington, often spelt Nonnington, is to be found in East Kent some two miles or so to the north-east of the A2 approximately mid-way between Dover and Canterbury. Sandwich is some seven miles to the north-east and Deal is about ten miles or so to the east. The old parish was divided into the present parishes of Aylesham and Nonington in the early 1950′s.

Why I built this site?
On this site I hope to post any information that I have on the people, places and events in the old parish before its division, although people, places and events in the present parish of Nonington will be referred to from time to time.
I hope the content will be both informative and of interest to visitors, and I look forward to reading your comments.
The history of Snowdown Colliery and the mining village of Aylesham, originally both in the old parish of Nonington, has been very well recorded on several excellent websites and will therefore will not be covered in any great detail.
I would be grateful for any information on old Nonington, and in return I am willing to pass on any information I have, and to link with any other relevant sites or blogs.
