About Rusthall

James the Sweep cleans chimneys for residents in Rusthall

Rusthall is a warm village community with plenty of chimneys to sweep, only two miles from Royal Tunbridge Wells. The origins of ‘Rusthall’ related to a historic large home of the same name, which was developed on Rusthall Common. Rusthall’s name is believed to originally have been ‘uuelle’, which is Anglo Saxon for natural rock. The modern village developed in the mid 1800s. Rusthall was also a popular tourist destination thanks to ‘Toad Rock’, an unusual rock structure on sandstone. There are a number of similar structures to be seen in Rusthall Common. Rusthall also has natural bathing waters, just like Tunbridge Wells where James the Sweep also sweeps chimneys, but they are no longer in use. Villagers support their local community and the annual bonfire and fireworks event is especially popular each October. Rusthall also has excellent commuting links to the wider area of Kent.

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.
