James the Sweep sweeps chimneys for residents in Rusthall
Rusthall has benefited from James the Sweep’s chimney sweeping services for many years. A friendly, inviting village situated just two miles from Tunbridge Wells – the original settlement developed from a historic manor on Rusthall Common. The etymological origins of Rusthall are believed to be ‘uuelle” (Anglo Saxon for natural rock), and the modern village, as it is known today, evolved in the mid 1800s. A particular highlight of Rusthall is ‘Toad Rock’, which is a sandstone rock structure with a somewhere unusual physical look. Other structures, akin to the toad, can be found at Rusthall Common. Some natural bathing waters, echoing those found at T Wells, are also present in Rusthall but they are no longer used as a means of relaxation. Rusthall is not an isolated spot either with some superb commuting routes to other parts of the county of Kent. Villagers in Rusthall, many of them customers of James the Sweep, are extremely supportive of their local community and a popular get-together in the annual calendar is the bonfire and fireworks event every October.
There are, in fact, two particular centres in Rusthall. One of these is the vicinity near Toad Rock, as stated. The other is Lower Green, which dates from about the 8th century. Another point of interest in Rusthall is the Grade Two listed Church of St Paul’s, which is in nearby Denby Bottom, constructed in 1849. The building stands as a fine example of ecclesiastical workmanship in Victorian architecture. Further architectural highlights are found in the pretty historic cottages laid out near the Red Lion Pub, along the old Brighton to London coaching road. The pub itself was first licensed in 1415. Nature also has lots to offer around Rusthall in the form of simply beautiful woodlands. The bluebells at Hurst Woods are a marvel to visit and there are other forms of flora and fauna in the nearby Shadwell Woods.
