Barming and Teston Ward

 

The Barming and Teston ward covers the mainly rural westernmost section of Barming and the village of Teston.  Bordered on its south side by the River Medway this ward affords fantastic views across the Medway Valley.

Teston is home to Barham Court once the home of the knight Randall Fitz Urse, one of the murderers of Thomas Beckett, and in later history recognised at the birthplace of the evangelical abolitionist movement.  Teston is also home to the Teston Bridge Country Park which is part of the Maidstone River Park and has well-maintained footpaths leading into Maidstone via Fant Ward and away from Maidstone via Wateringbury and Marden and Yalding ward.
