About Hadlow


Hadlow is a charming village located near Tonbridge in the county of Kent. The etymological origin of Hadlow lies in Anglo Saxon ‘Haeseholte’ and there was a settlement in the Stone Age era. Hadlow is now lined up in the Tonbridge and Malling District. The manor of Hadlow, Court Lodge, is a prominent building, which was looked after by the Knights Hospitaliers during the Middle Ages. The estate has subsequently been passed through the hands of various noblemen. There was a new manor built there in 1635. In the present day, the manor is a Grade One listed building and noted on the 1998 World Monuments World Watch List of Most Endangered Sites. Hadlow has other remarkable buildings, including two inns, which hail from the Tudor period. The River Bourne is also very much evident, marking a route through the parish. Residents in Hadlow enjoy their community and support the ancient cricket club and amateur dramatic society.

Hadlow College is a wonderful educational facility in Hadlow, which was founded in 1960. Courses range from foundation level right up to full honours degrees and apprenticeships, which are land-based. There are other part time and leisurely courses too for adults. Subjects range from animal behaviour to tractor driving and there is a garden centre on the site, known as Broadview, which is open to visitors. The gardens at Hadlow College are open to the public and free to visit, with a specialism in hellebores, usually blossoming in the months of January and February.

Residents known to be famous in Hadlow include the wordsmith who imported the printing press to England – William Caxton who died in 1491. Rumour has it that he was born in the village. Sports champs cricketer John Larkin (born 1726) and Allison Fisher, snooker ace, both grew up in the locality. Computer games guru Stephen Crow was also born there – in 1965. Artist Bernard Hailstone (died 1987) helped save Hadlow Castle from demolition. He was a popular face in the local community. The lay rector of Hadlow was at one time also the former Lord Mayor of London – John Rivers, who died in 1584. People interested in the history of Hadlow are recommended to peruse the fascinating books about the village penned by historian Joan Thirsk, who died in 2013.
