Church of England Diocese of Canterbury The Bridge Group

St Mary's

The ancient hamlet of Nackington, first mentioned in the Domesday book as "Natyndune", lies just south of Canterbury in a rural setting off the B2068. It's church, dedicated to St Mary the Virgin, is one of Kent's hidden gems and was given to the Priory of St Gregory in Canterbury by Archbishop Lanfranc in about 1076. Built of flint, brick and stone, it stands on a slight rise amongst ancient tombstones with a traditional Norman tower topped by a wooden spire in which hangs a single bell.
