Orpington

Orpington is a respectable town and borough ward from Bromley in the south eastern edge of London. Orpington was in the county of Kent before the official creation of Greater London in 1965. The history of the town stretches back to the Stone Age, with tools of the period found at Priory Gardens, Poverest, Goddington Park and the Ramsden Estate. Historical evidence also shows signs of settlements in the Iron Age, Romans and Anglo-Saxon periods. Today, Orpington has a wide mix of shopping facilities not only in High Street but also the Walnuts Shopping Centre, which has a popular leisure centre as well. Orpington is a busy place, unsurprisingly considering its proximity to London, but residents are friendly and passionate about the welfare of their local community.

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.
