Romney Marsh is in Kent.
Romney Marsh is a sparsely populated wetland area on the Kent/East Sussex border. There are a number of small villages and settlements in the area including New Romney, Lydd and Dungeness.
Difficult to believe now, but in medieval times New Romney was one of the Cinque Ports responsible for England's maritime defence. Then the Kent coast silted up, leaving the village a mile inland.
Appledore and Hythe are the nearest railway stations.
Bus 11 runs from Ashford to Lydd. Bus 101 runs from Hythe to New Romney.
- The flat terrain and quiet lanes are ideal for cycling. National Cycle Route 2 runs across the Marsh between Hastings and Folkestone.
