Nonington, also, variously, Nonnington, Nunyngton, Nonnyngton, Nunnington, is a small village in the Dover District in the southeast corner of Kent, situated halfway between the historic city of Canterbury and the channel port town of Dover.

In 1800, Edward Hasted noted, that the church of Nonington was "antiently a chapel of ease to that of Wingham, and was on the foundation of the college there by Archbishop Peckham in 1286". Then the church was given to the college. In 1558, Queen Mary granted it, among others, to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The parish of Nonington was once made up of the now separate parishes of Nonington and Aylesham. Aylesham was part of Nonington until 1951. Served by the Grade I listed 'Church of St Mary'. It also has a Baptist chapel, linked to Eythorne Baptist Church.

Nonington was part of the coalmining area of Kent which closed around 1980.
