Teston /ˈtiːstən/ () is a village in the Maidstone District of Kent, England. It is located on the A26 road out of Maidstone, four miles (6.4 km) from the town centre. There is a narrow stone bridge over the River Medway here.
Barham Court is the ‘big house’. It has now been converted into offices and apartments. It was once the home of Randall Fitz Urse, one of the knights who murdered Thomas Becket in 1170. It passed to the de Berham family now called the Barhams, and then the Boteler (or Butler) family. They were Royalists, William Butler was imprisoned for supporting the Kentish Royalist Petition 1642, which indirectly led to the Battle of Maidstone 1648. When Edward Hasted visited in the 18th century, it was owned by the Bouveries. After that it passed to the Charles Middleton, 1st Baron Barham.
Barham Court has been recognised by historians as the birthplace of the British evangelical abolitionist movement. It was in the house in the 1780s that a young Thomas Clarkson pledged his life to the cause, and where William Wilberforce agreed to bring the matter before the House of Commons for the first time. In 1789, Hannah More described the village as the “Runnymeade of the negroes”.
The village church is dedicated to St Peter and St Paul. On one wall of the church, under a window, is a memorial tablet to a former vicar, the Rev James Ramsay, he was the Rector of Teston and Nettlestead from 1781 until he died in July 1789. He was a friend of Charles Middleton, William Pitt and William Wilberforce and he worked with them for the abolition of slavery.
Rev. James Ramsay, who served as a surgeon under Middleton aboard HMS Arundel in the West Indies but later took holy orders and served on the Caribbean island of St Christopher (now St Kitts), where he observed first-hand the treatment of slaves. He briefly lived with the Middletons at Barham Court, then was given the living of the Teston and Nettlestead, by Middleton. Nestor Court is named after Ramsey’s servant and companion.
William Cobbett passed through Teston on Friday 5 September 1823.
There is a village green, shop/Post Office, Village Hall and a Farm Shop.
In the middle of the nineteenth century, Thomas Martin began making cricket balls in a workshop above the post office. When he retired the business was taken over by Alfred Reader who expanded the business and transferred it to the factory. The current factory. on Malling Road was built in 1927. The workers at the Reader factory formed their own trade union – The Teston Independent Society of Cricket Ball Makers, to represent their interests, it was the smallest trade unions in the country, and was only de-listed in March 2006.
Cricket has been played at Barham Court since 1896. The current club runs two teams, the Sunday Team representing the village in the Kent Village League.

Many people confuse a cesspool and a cesspit with a septic tank. While they both provide the same function, which is to collect wastewater and sewage from properties that are not connected to the mains sewer.
A cesspit differs to a septic tank in that they don’t treat the sewage nor do they have an outlet to allow the liquid part of the waste to drain away to a soakaway. Simply put, all the waste that goes into a cesspit, stays in the cesspit, which is why cesspits require more regular emptying compared to a septic tank.
Also, the costs of operating and maintaining a cesspit typically make them unsuitable for domestic use. On average. the annual costs to empty a cesspit can run anywhere between £2,000 to £8,000 in emptying charges alone. Not to mention the fact that many homes just don’t have the space required to install a cesspit. An average 3-4 bedroom home would require a tank capacity of upwards of 40,000 litres, resulting in a tank over 10 metres long and 2 metres wide!
Cesspits and cesspools can also be quite smelly compared to septic tanks as they require venting to allow trapped sewer gases to escape.
HOW OFTEN DOES A CESSPIT NEED TO BE EMPTIED in Teston?
This will depend on the level of use, and size of your tank. A cesspit will typically require emptying more often than a Septic tank as there is no treatment of the waste, it is simply held in the tank until it is time to be emptied.
Cesspits will typically need to be emptied every 45 days or so, you may have a cesspit alarm that will tell you when it is time to empty it.
