KENT AREA

Anderson Associates are experienced chartered surveyors who cover large parts of Kent, including Ashford, Bexley, Canterbury, Gravesend, Dartford, Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Gillingham, Medway and Orpington.

Kent is one of the most England’s most attractive counties, and it is known as ‘The Garden of England’ because of its large number of fruit and hop fields.

The History of Kent

Kent is also one of the oldest of English counties. There is evidence of prehistoric settlements before it was conquered and occupied by the Anglo-Saxons – its closeness to the continent has historically made it more vulnerable to invasion. Kent was the backdrop for many of the air battles during the 1940 Battle of Britain, and parts of it were damaged by German bombing raids and flying bombs later in the Second World War.

Current major employers include the haulage and tourism industries, the construction sector, and scientific research. However, a large percentage of the county’s population commutes to work in London.

Modern Developments

Kent has a wide mix of properties. The north-west of the county has come to be classified as an extension to London, but there are lots of picture-postcard villages with thatched cottages and timber-framed houses elsewhere in the county. Many former oast houses, which were used for drying hops as part of the brewing process, have now been converted into homes with lots of character.
