ⓘ Limenwara

The Limenwara or Limenware were a people of Anglo-Saxon England whose territory formed a regio or early administrative subdivision of the Kingdom of Kent. The name means "Limen-dwellers", with "Limen" being the name of the former eastern arm of the River Rother, which at that time entered the sea at Lympne.

The area was built around the two main settlements, from Lympne, as the original Royal villas and the Centre of Imperial administration and Lyminge arising from remote assets such as the Cathedral and the territorys centre of Church administration. There is evidence of significant continuity with the earlier Roman occupation: Lympne was the site of a Roman-Saxon shore Fort of Portus Lemanis, and the Cathedral in Lyminge, perhaps occupying the site of an earlier Roman temple.

Territory Limenwara survived as one of the lathes in the late County of Kent, originally takes its name from the Limenwara, but was later renamed lathe Shepway.
