New Romney : History

In the latter part of the thirteenth century, a series of severe storms weakened the coastal defences of Romney Marsh and the South England flood of February 1287 almost destroyed the town. The harbour and the town were both filled with sand, silt, mud and debris.

Since it's never been entirely removed from the town, many old buildings, especially the church, have steps leading down into them from the present pavement level. New Romney is the main centre of population on the Romney Marsh and was founded in 1610 by John Southland.

New Romney Location
