Borough of Maidstone
Maidstone, situated on the river Medway about 30 miles from London, is the county town of Kent in southeast England. The present boundaries date back to 1974, when the local government district (now borough) of Maidstone was formed, within the county of Kent, by the merger of the then municipal borough of Maidstone, the Maidstone rural district and adjoining areas.
Maidstone Jewish Community
are records of Jewish residents of Maidstone from as early as the first half of
the nineteenth century, it appears that no formal congregation was ever
established until the formation of a Liberal congregation in the 1990s.
