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.
