History

Caption for Borden, The Village C1950

This village is situated just outside Sittingbourne, but has avoided being swallowed up so far. We see a view of the main street here; this was probably as busy as it got in those days! The name Borden means 'woodland pasture by the hill'. A number of Roman coins and the foundations of two Roman buildings were dug up at Sutton-Barn here in 1846.
