Newington is a village in Kent, England one mile (1.6 km) west-north-west of Folkestone. It gives its name to Newington Parish Council, which has five councillors,[2] and includes the hamlets of Arpinge and Beachborough. The village lies to the north of the M20 motorway and the A20 road; the Channel Tunnel complex is nearby.

The ecclesiastical parish was known as Newington-next-Hythe, the latter town being 2 1⁄2 miles (4.0 km) to the south-west; the parish church is dedicated to St Nicholas.[3] Nearby there used to be a 13th-century Augustinian priory, founded in 1253 by Sir John Maunsell, who became a counsellor of King Henry III.[4]
