Sevington in Kent lies just off the A2070 Romney Marsh to Ashford road
on a small hill. The village has always been involved with farming
as can be seen by the surrounding area.
The village was settled in Saxon times as parts of the church
can vouch for. The Normans came and added to the structure and the
English finished the work in the 1400's.
The village now consists of the church and Court Lodge which is
now a private dwelling. It is slowly being reached by the buildings
from Ashford, and in a few years will be absorbed into the town.
It is strange that if you park by the church and face the church
that the area looks deserted and has the feel of the villages
near the north of the Romney Marsh . If you look in the other
direction, you see on a nearby embankment a dual carriageway
which is part of the Ashford ring road.
The village only consists of the church and farmhouse, so has
no local services.
However Ashford town centre with all its main town services only
lies about 1 mile away.
Sevington is shown as the red symbol on the map.
