History of Ringlestone

Ringlestone [pronounced 'Ring-elst-own'] means 'ring of stones'. It is a hamlet and should not to be confused with the Ringlestone suburb of Maidstone
The Domesday Book chronicles
Ringlestone as Rongostone.


Ringlestone dates to before the Norman conquest of England in 1066 and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. At the time of the Survey, the hamlet was smaller than it is today and yet still deemed worthy of entry.
