Sevenoaks is a fortunate town. Surrounded on the east by the great deer park of Knole, on the south and west by remnants of the great Wealden forest, and looking north over the beautiful Darenth valley, it is no more than a half-hour journey to London or to Gatwick Airport and an hour’s drive to the Channel ports.

It is a place worth conserving and improving and that is what the Sevenoaks Society stands for.  The society is an association of local people who care about the character and appearance of the town and its surroundings. We are not against development, indeed the town has developed in many different ways since it was established as a market town in the 12th century. We try to influence the quality and scope of development proposals with the assistance of the town’s residents.
