Community Focus - High Brooms

High Brooms is in the North East of the wider borough of Tunbridge Wells in Kent and a part of the parish of Southborough. High Brooms is named after “broom” which grew on part of the area. In its natural state High Brooms was a densely wooded slopes (mostly “High Brooms Wood”) in the area now set around Powder Mill Lane. From 1870, as part of the modernisation of facilities in and around the Tunbridge Wells area, and the establishment of the High Brooms Brick Company, the modern community of High Brooms was established.

Today the High Brooms area has a growing number of residents and businesses with further residential developments bringing new families and individuals to the area. High Brooms founding properties are well known for their distinctive reddish bricks and set the tone for the style of the area.

The High Brooms area has a primary school (St Matthew’s C of E Primary School) and sub-post office, as well as churches and local shops including a hair salon, flooring company, car wash, chip shop and our very own hunni homes branch.

High Brooms also benefits from direct links to central London via the High Brooms Railway Station. Regular trains (every 20 minutes at peak time) are of huge benefit to commuters, and the High Brooms Railway Station also takes you in a southerly direction through Tunbridge Wells to Hastings. Public transport is easily available with the 281 bus route which has regular stops throughout High Brooms and provides direct connections to Tunbridge Wells for local residents.

High Brooms is looked after by 3 councils, Kent County Council, Southborough Council and Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and due to its geographical proximity has its primary link with the Southborough community.

In nearby Southborough there are multiple pre-schools, a library, dentist, medical centre and chemist. The main Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust Hospital is less than 3 miles away from central High Brooms.

We chose High Brooms as the location for our first branch of hunni homes in 2017, and pride ourselves on truly being, your local estate agent.
