Welcome to Newenden

Newenden is the smallest village in Kent, and also the first village in Kent, as you travel across the 18th-century bridge over River Rother. It rests on memories of grander days, when its port, market and sixteen inns were an important part of the regional economy. Today it is just a small, friendly village, but the tradition of enterprise remains strong.

The village lies entirely within the High Weald AONB and the central, oldest part of the village is a conservation area in its own right. Around us we have some of the most beautiful rural landscape in the South-East, so why not come and visit? Explore the village through our website, and then in person - you are always very welcome to Newenden!
