Borough Green

3.2
Borough Green is a large village and civil parish in the Tonbridge and Malling district of Kent, England. The main village is situated on the A25 road between Maidstone and Sevenoaks in Kent.HistoryThe village's name describes what it originally was – the green to which the people of what was then the borough of Wrotham went for recreation. There is also a view that "borough", which predates any borough council in the area, relates to barrow, possibly referring to the Roman remains near the station site. Its location at a crossroads (the old route from Gravesend to Hastings crossed here) meant that inns were gradually opened: 1586 Red Lion (now closed)1592 Black Bull, later the Black Horse, then The Black Horse and Hooden, and most recently The Black Horse again1753 The Bull1837 Fox & Hounds (now converted into private housing)1860 The Rock (now converted into private housing)1878 The Railway Hotel, later The Henry Simmonds, then Sainsbury's Local store. Great Comp, an early 17th-century house, is located in the parish of St Mary's Platt, one mile to the east of the village. Its gardens, administered by a charitable trust, are open to the public.
