History

Caption for Farningham, The Bridge And Lion Hotel C1955

Farningham is just a short distance from Eynsford, set at another pretty crossing of the Darent between ridges of chalk hills. Known at the time of Domesday as Ferlingeham, it was once a significant market centre, and in later centuries had important paper mills. During the 18th century the Lion Hotel was a stagecoach stop on the way to and from London. Since the 1920s, the village has been bypassed by the A20.

The garden they had was in teers and the ...Read full memory
