The history of Bromley

It is believed that the Romans built a camp at Keston, where the natural spring known as Caesar's Well constitutes the source of the Ravensbourne river. Bromley first starts to be mentioned around 862 as Bromleag ('woodland clearing where broom grows'). Around this time, Ethelbert, the King of Kent, approved land for the Manor of Bromley and it belonged to the Bishops of Rochester until 1845, when wealthy local Coles Child bought Bromley Palace, becoming lord of the manor in the process. Already an important stop for coaches travelling between Hastings and London, the arrival in 1858 of the railway to nearby Shortlands, led to Bromley's rapid growth. Suburbs such as Bickley began to develop to accommodate people who valued the town's proximity to London.

Bromley Urban District Council was created in 1894 and the district was later expanded with over 1800 acres absorbed from parts of Keston, Farnborough, West Wickham and Hayes. Bromley became part of the GLC in 1965, as a new London borough. It is now the largest London borough by area.
