    History of the Gun - Horsmonden
    Browne had the monopoly on manufacture of royal guns and in 1625, after the outbreak of the Spanish War, his foundry at Horsmonden made five hundred guns for the British ships. King Charles I visited the foundry in 1638 ti watch a canon being cast – a bronze four-pounder, forty-two inches long, now preserved in London’s White Tower.

    The famous foundry closed in 1685 and is now remembered both by The Gun and Spitroast, formerly The Gun, so-named after it became an inn round about 1750, and by the canon carved on one quarter of the wooden village sign.

    This plot situated in the heart of Horsmonden close to the village green, and is equally convenient for the primary and nursery schools plus a good range of shops including the award winning Heath Stores. Other facilities include a pharmacy, hairdressers, pub/restaurant, village hall, social club, tennis and cricket clubs, doctor's surgery and bus service to neighbouring villages and towns.

    Less than four miles away is the small rural town of Paddock Wood with a Waitrose supermarket, several independent shops and coffee shops plus the nearest main line railway station with fast and frequent commuter services to London and the coast. 50 minutes to London Charing Cross and Dover Priory in the opposite direction via Ashford International.

    The larger towns of Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone are approx 9, 10, and 11 miles distant, each offering an even wider variety of shopping, social and educational facilities.

    An ideal opportunity for small developer or self build. The property built would offer circa 1,300 sq ft of accommodation with small garden and off road parking.
