Tonbridge

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Kent  /  Tonbridge
Tonbridge is a market town in the English county of Kent, with a population of 38,657 in 2011. It is located on the River Medway, approximately 4mi north of Royal Tunbridge Wells, south west of Maidstone and south east of London. It belongs to the administrative borough of Tonbridge and Malling .There are several independent educational establishments in the town, including the prestigious Tonbridge School.HistoryToponymyThe town was recorded in the Domesday Book 1087 as Tonebrige, which may indicate a bridge belonging to the estate or manor (from the Old English tun), or alternatively a bridge belonging to Tunna, a common Anglo-Saxon man's name. Another theory suggests that the name is a contraction of "town of bridges", due to the large number of streams the High Street originally crossed.Until 1870, the town's name was actually spelt Tunbridge, as shown on old maps including the 1871 Ordnance Survey map and contemporary issues of the Bradshaw railway guide. In 1870, this was changed to Tonbridge by the GPO due to confusion with nearby Tunbridge Wells, despite Tonbridge being a much older settlement. Tunbridge Wells has always maintained the same spelling.
