The Kennington Chronicle is the Parish Magazine for Kennington, Vale of the White Horse, Oxfordshire.

A Brief History

The Chronicle, whose predecessor was a church newsletter, published its first edition as a small four-page booklet in December 1984. Since then, it has grown into today’s book of usually between 44 and 52 pages. Its contents include news from various Kennington organisations, details of the three local churches, occasional general articles, and adverts from businesses serving the area.

The Chronicle is run entirely by unpaid volunteers for the benefit of the village.


Kennington has about 4,000 people in around 1,850 households. A small army of volunteers delivers the Chronicle free to every Kennington household shortly before the start of each month, except for August when there is no edition.

As from July 2008, the Chronicle is also available on-line in a larger size and in colour.
