Summary Description

St Stephen’s is the parish church of what was once a separate village a short distance outside the city limits, but by the 20th century became a suburb of Canterbury. The earliest reference to it dates from the 12th century, when it is referred to as the Chapel of Hackington. In origin, it is a cruciform Norman church, as shown by the herringbone masonry in the south wall of the nave, south portal and arches to the north and south transepts.
