Dymchurch has had a sea wall since Roman times, with the original development being constructed to protect the harbour at Port Lympne. The original structure is believed to have run for some 4 miles and to have stood 20 ft high. This wall, together with the Rhee Wall erected between New Romney and Appledore, ensured that the rich alluvial land deposited by the river Limen (Rother) which had initially been used as salt pans, slowly became rich and fertile farmland.

The town expanded in the 1930s and many of the early homes were actually converted railway carriages, a few of which remain at Dungeness.

R.Thorndike was a British actor and novelist, best known for the Dr Syn of Romney Marsh novels, and brother of renowned actress Dame Sybil Thorndike. Russell's first appearance on stage was in Cambridge in 1904.

The New Hall was built in 1575 for the Leveller of the Marsh Scots who collected payment from the locals for the maintenance of the sea wall. Residents were also obliged by law to grow thorn bushes to build the seawall, as thorn branches were initially thought to deter the seawater!
