Milton St Nicholas is an Ancient Parish in Milton near Canterbury. The church was totally rebuilt in 1829-1830 and is adjacent to the former Milton Manor house ( now demolished) The parish was united with Thanington, Kent from 1884; a map of the Thanington parish boundary is available at A church near you
Milton was effectively a chapel to the Manor and was sparsely attended; the rebuilding served only a small group of local families and became unsustainable.
