Kennington is a suburb of Ashford in Kent, England. It is about a mile northeast of the town centre and north of the M20 motorway, and contains the 12th-century church, St Mary's. The main A28 Canterbury Road and A251 Faversham Road run through the village. In recent years the village has expanded with the building of new housing estates in the Little Burton and Towers View areas.
Kennington is also home to 1st Kennington Scout group, a long running scout group that includes all factions of the Scouting association; Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers (also known as 'Big Cubs'), and a highly successful branch of Network, dubbed 'The Roosters', featuring local minor celebrity 'Little' John Sheret. Kennington has four pubs, The Old Mill (formerly The Golden Ball), The Pilgrims Rest, The Rose Inn and The Pheasant.
The borough councillor for the Kennington Ward is Philip Sims (Ashford Independents). The Kennington News, published quarterly by Kennington Community Forum, is delivered to 5,000 homes and can also be read at www.kenningtoncf.kentparishes.gov.uk
