Groombridge Land – Coming out of Age

Groombridge Land has a rich past starting from the year 1000 AD which is reportedly the time when a military guard was posted to defend the river crossing between the ancient kingdoms of Kent and Sussex. Before the Norman conquest the area around Groombridge was a denn, a medieval pig pasture. The earliest known owner was William Russell, who was granted lordship of the Manor of Groombridge in the 1230s. William built a fortified Manor House, surrounded by the moat which still survives today. He and his wife Haweis were granted a charter by Henry III to found a chantry.

Since then Groombridge has seen Magna Carta, 100 years war of Black Death, Gambling Debts war and smugglers’ gangs. There was a time when Groombridge Land was visited by Sherlock Holmes and also saw World War I and World War II. Most importantly Groombridge is known for the Gardens and the Groombridge Place between the enchanted forests.
