New Romney is a small town in Kent, on the edge of Romney Marsh, an area of flat, rich agricultural land reclaimed from the sea. New Romney is one of the original Cinque Ports and was originally a harbour town at the mouth of the River Rother, but is now over a mile from the sea. Many towns on the Romney Marsh have an impressive Norman church in the town centre and New Romney is no exception having St Nicholas’ Church which once stood on the harbour side. Ships tied up alongside the churchyard until a great storm in 1287 diverted the River Rother away from Romney. The height of the flood waters can still be seen from the stains on the pillars inside. New Romney's high street has several shops, three pubs - The New Inn, The Ship and Cinque Ports Arms, and several notable historic buildings. The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway opened in 1927. It stretches for nearly 14 miles from Hythe to the lighthouses at Dungeness, through Dymchurch, St Marys Bay and its base at New Romney. There is a links golf course at nearby Littlestone-on-Sea which has been used several times for the qualifying rounds of The Open Championship.
