Tonbridge is a thriving market town, situated on the upper reaches of the River Medway in the heart of Kent. Having expanded with the coming of the railway, today it is a popular commuter town. Also notable are the town's architectural features: the remnants of its ancient castle, the great public school buildings, and the beautiful period homes, which are dotted around the adjacent countryside, known for the production of hops and fruit. Amid the surrounding beauty, sport also plays a part in Tonbridge. Cricket has strong roots here; the area is remarkably close to the epicentre of the sport's genesis. Tonbridge & Around Through Time shows the changes the town and the nearby villages of East Peckham, Hildenborough, Penshurst, Leigh, Hadlow and Tudeley have seen, from the impact of the motor car to the expansion of homes, in this captivating contrast of old and new photographs.
