Borough Green and Wrotham Station
About Borough Green and Wrotham
Borough Green and the Village of Wrotham are located between Maidstone and Sevenoaks. The word Borough Green is thought to originate from the Old English word grene, meaning green place. This was added to an earlier plane name of either burh or borg, which meant stronghold.
The train station was known as Wrotham and Borough Green until the early 1960s when the Parish Council lobbied for it to be renamed to become Borough Green and Wrotham. The disagreement was all about the boundary in which the train station was located during the 1880s.
We would like to thank "Rainham Rail Enthusiast" for allowing us to link his video of the station.
