Sevenoaks is a thriving town in west Kent, situated within the Sevenoaks District. A former village, the development of the majestic Knole House in the 15th century helped galvanise prospects for residents who today comprise commuters for London. Even so, the town still packs a hefty punch when it comes to economic prowess and there is an industrial area to the north, just off the A225. The high street and Bligh's shopping development also bolster the local economy and the known music string manufacturer, RotoSound, is located in the town. Strings made by the company have been use by famous musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Peter Townshend and Brian May. Other famous residents include the Princess of Wales, Diana, who went to West Heath School and another royal connection - Timothy Lawrence, ex husband of Princess Anne, was a pupil at Sevenoaks School.
Sevenoaks is located in a solid position for travelling to other areas of Kent, and further afield to Sussex and London. It was built at the junction of two main routes that come from the north and then down to the ridge, which crosses Kent from east to west, known as Greensand Ridge. In fact, the road was turnpiked in 1709, and so has historical prestige. Travellers to the region will also find the River Darwent to the north, which wends through the North Downs and there are a number of lakes in the vicinity.
Sevenoaks suffered a mishap in the Great Storm of 1987 when six oak trees, from which the town gets its name (there is evidence to suggest oaks have been present since about 800AD), were blown over and just one tree remained. The trees, planted in 1902 for Edward VII's coronation, were located near the Vine cricket ground, named after a vineyard planted by a former Archbishop of Canterbury. The trees were replanted and in fact, there are now eight oaks in the vicinity because the seventh oak, thought to be damaged, actually made a full recovery. Cricket, interestingly, has been played in Sevenoaks since 1734. A nugget of sporting historical fact is that the middle stump, now commonly used internationally and nationally in the game, happened after 'Lumpy Stevens' bowled out Mr John Small three times during a cricket match in Sevenoaks by focusing on the gap between two stumps common at the time. So a middle stump was added to make the game fairer. Sevenoaks has, therefore, had a big impact on the game of cricket with this small but significant change.
Sevenoaks has a high standard of provision for education with a good number of schools catering for pupils of all ages. Four state primary schools serve younger pupils within the Sevenoaks area and there is a mixed secondary school, from the state sector, called the Knole Academy, which was formed from Bradbourne School and Wildernesse School in 2009. Trinity School, a Christian free school, is situated on the Seal Hollow Road, which is to the north-east of Sevenoaks. The same road is also the location for a grammar school. Independent schools are also represented well in Sevenoaks, with preparatory schools including New Beacon Preparatory School, Sevenoaks Preparatory School, Solefield School for boys and Walthamstow Hall. There is also Sevenoaks School, which is a day and boarding school for both sexes.
Sevenoaks residents live in a beautiful range of homes throughout the town, on streets such as London Road, St Botolphs Road, Pembroke Road, Seal Hollow Road, Kippington Road, Granville Road and Hitchen Hatch Lane. St Johns Hill, following the A225, leads off to Sevenoaks Hospital. Bradbourne Vale Road, for the A25, meanwhile, concords with the Bradbourne Lakes and Bradbourne Sandpits Recreation Ground, with roads nearby including Hill Crest, Betenson Avenue, Bradbourne Park Road, Robyns Way, Oakdene Road and Pontoise Close.
