The 19th century saw the establishment of a colliery and a railway. These no longer exist but Wingham endures as a thriving community.
Wingham is situated on the A257, midway between Canterbury and Sandwich. It was inhabited in the Stone Age but was first established as a village by the Romans. In early Saxon times the manor of Wingham came into the possession of the Archbishop of Canterbury and is recorded as such in the Domesday Book.
