Edenbridge Town

Edenbridge High Street

Edenbridge
High Street


Edenbridge is a small town (some would say, village), on the Kent / Surrey border. In common with most places of this size (approx. 8,000 population), it consists of a single main road, with housing estates and industrial areas to either side.
Edenbridge has a history going back to the Roman period. The high street road was built about 100AD. The first mention of Edenbridge in a document was in the Textus Roffensis about 1122 AD

Church Street
Edenbridge

Edenbridge, with a population of just under 8,000, is situated in the extreme south west corner of Kent on the borders of Surrey and Sussex.

It developed in Roman times with the construction of the London to Lewes road. Along the high street many ancient houses are to be found with the 13th Century church a few yards away. The Great Stone Bridge, crossing the River Eden, replaces an earlier one of 1831.

Nearby iron workings and the tanning industry (closed in the '60s) gave the town its prosperity.
The advent of the railways and the Redhill and Uckfield lines, saw a rise in population. This contributed to the many fine Victorian and Edwardian houses.

Old Stone Bridge

Edenbridge is a friendly and self-contained town. It has all the basic requirements for day-to-day living - shops schools, doctors, dentists, hospital, library and more than 70 clubs and societies. A general weekly market is held on Thursdays.

There are parks, a leisure centre with a swimming pool and all-weather pitch, sports ground as well as ample opportunities for golf, tennis, riding and walking.

Bonfire night celebrations take place on the nearest Saturday to November 5. This commences with the grand torchlight procession followed by tableaux, marching bands and walking parties. A firework display concludes the festivities.
