Old Romney is a village and civil parish in the Shepway District of Kent, England.The village, as its name suggests, is the original site of the settlement, and is situated two miles (3.2 km) inland from New Romney. It lies on what was once an island in the erstwhile River Rother estuary.It was noted in Roman times as Vetus Rumellenum; by the time of the Domesday Book New Romney was already in existence.Parish HistoryOld Romney is a village and civil parish located in the Shepway district of Kent.Old Romney St. Clement is a parish dating back to ancient times and, as the name hints out, commenced the primitive settlement of Romney Marsh. It was, thus, the initial port of Romney which over time, stretched out along the Rother toward the sea with either half being labelled "Old" and "New" Romney. As the port let go the importance of the village of Old Romney dwindled and not long after that, only St. Clement and the settlement were left untouched by the 1600s.The location of the village and civil parish is on an island in the River Rother.St Clement's ChurchSt Clement's Church in Old Romney, Romney Marsh, is a Church of England parish church and one of the oldest churches in Kent. It was originally constructed in the 12th century although there is some evidence of an original structure on the site dating back to the 8th century.
