History of Kilmington
The village of Kilmington developed off the main road running east to west, the current A35. It grew in support of the dominant farming economy. There were three main centers of population quite widely spaced at The Green, Silver Street and the northern end of The Hill; The Street linked these three centers. There was a smaller community around Kilmington Cross on the main road and a number of large farms outside the core of the village. About 85of the 94 properties listed around 1840 that have survived provide the historic core of modern Kilmington. They lie on a network of roads and lanes that has not changed over the last 200 years and is of critical importance to the visual character of the village.
