Pembury has a lot of residents who call upon James the Sweep to sweep their chimneys. It’s certainly a pleasant place to work, nestled close to Royal Tunbridge Wells and found within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether it’s chimney sweeping, flue risk assessments, woodburners and gas fires, birds’ nests or any other matter related to chimneys and indoor fires – James the Sweep is only too happy to give free advice to villagers. Pembury is the sort of place where people are proud of their surroundings. There’s a good array of shops and a bubbling social scene with hobby horse societies and leisure clubs. Five hamlets actually form the make-up of Pembury: Lower Green, Bo-Peep, Upper Green, Romford and Hawkwell. The link-up between these areas happened in the early 20th century and, since then, there’s been add-on housing estates with Beagles Wood, Woodhill Park and Ridgeway.
Pembury village is host to Pembury Hospital, which is overseen by Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust. It’s a big, multi service and acute care hospital for serving the local area and it is located at a site on Tonbridge Road, north-west of Pembury itself. Laing O’Rourke built the hospital, costing £226 million, in September 2011 and each inpatient using the facilities has an ensuite room and massive windows with good views over the nearby countryside – a design, which is considered unique and a ‘first’ in hospital design for mainland Britain.
Pembury is home to a number of wonderful historic buildings, which date from the period of the 1200s right through to the 21st century. This long history is evidence of the village’s influence over this rural part of western Kent. Archaeologists have also discovered evidence of an Iron Age settlement in the local area of Pembury. This is evidence that people have inhabited the region for hundreds of years. The local Pembury Village News informs the villagers about latest developments. It is published four times per year by the parish council and distributed to 2,300 homes around Pembury. The publication ranges in content, from news to features but all focused on life in the village of Pembury.
