Our Village

A brief history of Hollingbourne

Hollingbourne is a historic village noted for its superb landscape where ancient buildings add to the rural heritage. Springs from the North Downs give rise to tributaries that join the River Len; these springs feed mill streams and ponds, and their neighbouring meadowland and woods, all of which have ensured Hollingbourne’s historic prosperity.
