Allington is a modern little residential Kentish village-cum-town with a population of about seven thousand (in 2015). Officially, it’s part of the town of Maidstone.

The village is in a charming setting alongside the winding River Medway that flows from around Tonbridge out into the Thames Estuary at Sheerness.

Maidstone is the largest town in Kent, the county fondly known as the Garden of England for its prowess in fruit-growing and gardening hops.

It’s an idyllic area with beautiful countryside and a river running through it, but another huge attraction is its proximity to London, the south-east coast of England, and the rest of Europe across the English Channel. Four motorways are within a few miles of the town.

Allington has an old stone-built moated castle, aptly named Allington Castle, as its centrepiece.

In the Second World War, the skies above Maidstone were arguably the centre stage in the great Battle of Britain of 1940.
