LOCATION Situated in the conservation area on the eastern edge of the town, known as the "Capital of Romney Marsh", New Romney was granted Cinque Ports Status in the second half of the 12th century and it was here that Thomas `a Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, made a failed attempt to reach Rome. Once a sea port, with the harbour adjacent to the church, a great storm in 1287 caused the River Rother to change its course. The old port silted up and was lost but the town retains much of its character. New Romney's historic high street has several small and interesting shops and services including banks, surgeries, greengrocers, florist, antique shops, bakery, post office, pubs, restaurants and a Sainsburys supermarket. The town is also known for its Country Fayre and famous Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch light railway. Schools in the area include The Marsh Academy, Folkestone School for Girls, The Harvey Grammar School for boys, Norton Knatchbull Grammar School for boys and Highworth Grammar School for girls both in Ashford, 11 miles to the north. The A2070 Ashford approach road connects to the M20 and International Station with high speed service to London St Pancras, journey time 37 minutes. The Channel Tunnel Terminal near Folkestone is 12 miles and the Ancient Town of Rye, with its period Citadel, is about 10 miles to the west.
