Swanley Travel Information

Travel Information Swanley is two separate places - a town and a village. The ancient parish and village of Swanley have now been overtaken by the town, about a mile to the north, which began life as three houses before the advent of the railway and the arrival of the Rochester-St Mary Cray railway line in 1861. The hamlet where the station was built had only three houses in the 1850's, but it quickly became known as Swanley Junction and a new church was built there for the new ecclesiastical parish that was created to cater for the rapidly expanding population.
