Priory Road Area
Priory road area is a street in Tonbridge, England that has been around since the 16th century. Originally, Priory Road was known as Rotten Row and it was used for horseback riding. In 1852, the road became more popular with pedestrians and the name changed to Priory Road because of its proximity to Tonbridge Priory Church. The area saw an influx of new residents during WWII when American soldiers were stationed at Tunbridge Wells Racecourse.
The area between Priory Road and Pembury Road was developed after the owners of nearby farms sold off their land in smaller plots to a number of builders. The buildings that were built here range from small cottages, large villas with gardens, houses for farm laborers, some without any garden or yard space at all; these are still standing today as they have become landmarks within this bustling town.
The Priory Road area is a residential district in Tonbridge, Kent. The name derives from the medieval priory located there during the Middle Ages, of which nothing remains today except for an old well and possibly some masonry under flooring stones at one property on Pembury Road. Records show that plots were first offered for sale off Priory road to builders in 1852 with most of them being completed by 1865. Nowadays this part of PRIORY ROAD AREA consists mainly of narrow quite steeply sloping streets running up southwards from Priory Road to Pembury Road. Some surrounding roads have seen more recent development than others and while it has been largely retained as primarily residential use other uses are evident including local pubs and walking distance to the town centre, Tonbridge Priory and Tonbridge West station.
