Kingsnorth

Kingsnorth is a popular and ever-growing village situated within 2 miles of the centre of Ashford.


Like Ashford, the village of Kinsgnorth has an interesting and historical background. A transcript from the Domesday Book of 1086 indicates that there was once a settlement at Kingsnorth Unknown to many, the old English name for Kingsnorth was ‘Cyninges Snad’ meaning detached land belonging to a Royal estate – this was referring to the time when King Henry II reigned England when wild boars heads from the ancient forests of Kingsnorth would be served to royalty and their guests.

Part of the village of Kingsnorth is a designated conservation area which incorporates the 13th century church of St Michael’s & All Angels and several historical residences dating back to the 15th, 17th & 18th century.

As the local town of Ashford has grown there has been an overspill into Kingsnorth which has seen an expansion over recent years as a result. There are several new popular housing estates which have popped up around the area with good supporting infrastructure to boot.

Local facilities include large superstores, Kingsnorth C of E Primary School, a playing field, village hall and a family run local pub.

With fast access to Ashford via the new Orbital roads, Kingsnorth is a great village location for those who need to travel locally or who commute to London or Europe on a regular basis.
