Orpington is a town and borough ward near Bromley, in South East London. The town was located within the county boundaries of Kent before Greater London was founded in 1965. Orpington’s history dates back to the Stone Age era and tools from the period have been discovered at the Ramsden Estate, Poverest, Priory Gardens and Goddington Park. There is further evidence of the Iron Age, Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods. Modern day Orpington contains a good range of shops based in the Walnuts Shopping Centre, the High Street and nearby roads. There is a leisure centre in the shopping centre as well, for use by residents in Orpington.
Orpington does have a quirky side and ‘Orpington Man’ is a phrase coined by journalists to describe a typical lower middle class person. Chickens bred in the town gained a wider recognition with the speckled, black and buff varieties of Buff Orpington kept by William Cook, in the 1890s, being a particularly noteworthy breed, which were at Tripes Farm in Chelsfield Lane until the 1990s. He also bred Buff Orpington ducks. A very different product is the Orpington Car, which was a two-seater convertible made by Smith & Milroy Ltd in Wellington Road. The 10 horsepower engine impressed motor enthusiasts and the car was brought to the Motor Show in 1920. The model could not compete with other cars in mass production and there are no surviving models.
Orpington is a properly friendly town with a thriving community. As a development, it is very well connected to Bromley and to other areas such as Crockenhill and Petts Wood, which is mainly accessed from a route involving Perry Hall Road via Chislehurst Road to Willett Way. The A232 cuts through Orpington in the southern part of the residential areas, which are themselves set up around larger roads such as Crofton Lane. Broxbourne Road and Mayfield Avenue. There’s also Keswick Road, which leads to Broomhill Common, and from there to the High Street in Orpington via Broomhill Road. Smaller roads also abound in the vicinity, such as Novar Close; Cyril Road; Oatfield Road; Brookside; Westholme; and Nursery Close. Orpington Hospital, supported by the local community, is accessed off Sevenoaks Road.
