From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brasted /ˈbrstɛd/[2] is a village and civil parish in the Sevenoaks District of Kent, England. Brasted lies on the A25 road, between Sundridge and Westerham; the road is named Westerham Road, High Street and Main Road as it passes through the village east to west. Brasted is 6 km west of Sevenoaks town. The parish includes the settlements of Brasted Chart and Toys Hill, and had a population of 1321 (2001 census). The village has a number of 18th-century houses, and several antique shops. The parish church is dedicated to St Martin.

The name is recorded as Briestede in 1086 and as Bradestede around 1100; it is from Old English brād + stede and means "broad place".[3] In the 19th century Napoleon III lived in Brasted Place (one of only two Robert Adam houses in Kent). Another famous resident was John Turton, physician to King George III.[4]

Brasted had a railway station on the branch line running between Westerham and Dunton Green that opened in 1881 and closed in 1961. Australian soft-drink manufacturer George Marchant was born in Brasted in 1857. During the Second World War the local pub, the White Hart, was popular with RAF fighter pilots stationed at nearby Biggin Hill.

Just to the north of Brasted the M25 motorway passes in a west–east direction; the River Darent has its source near the village.

  • ✪ Why do most West Bank parks in New Orleans seem forgotten?

Transcription

Ahh, the great outdoors. Let's go for a walk in a local park shall we? How's this one? Or this one? Or this one? Not so great looking? Well, all of these parks have one thing in common: They are on the West Bank. I recently spent some time traveling around city-run parks in Algiers where my visits turned up things like rusting equipment, incomplete repairs and construction that, in at least one case, seemed abandoned. Just one park actually had striping complete on any of its fields. On one drive with Councilwoman Kristen Gisleson Palmer, she got excited because the park's grass had been cut. I mean, come on. Let's also consider Brechtel, which is the only public park in the entire city you've got to pay to get into. Last year, that fee rang up less than $5,000 for public coffers. What's the value in even paying someone to collect it? Parks on the West Bank are a big thing for Councilwoman Palmer. She founded Confetti Kids, a grassroots organization that has taken on two neighborhood playgrounds in Algiers Point and these days she's hoping to get some traction on long delayed improvements. One of those projects is the development of a public-private partnership to take over the shuttered Brechtel Memorial Golf Course, which has been dormant since 2011. Now, it's just a big over-gown lot strewn with trash at its entrance. The city's hope is to to turn it into an elite soccer facility, which could attract league play from around the Southeast. That goal might seem somewhere far in the distance, but there's at least one attainable goal for now. Confetti Kids has taken over a new lot in Old Algiers at the site of a once makeshift park that got taken apart in the months after Katrina. A representative for Confetti said the group needs money to level out the lot before they can really get started. A local activist, Loyd Dennis, who actually lives across from another Algiers Park summed it up for me. 'All it takes,' he said, is 'somebody to not see kids as a problem.'

Brasted Chart

Brasted Chart is a hamlet within the civil parish of Brasted. It lies to the south of Brasted and the north of Four Elms. Its road, Chart Lane, leads to another hamlet called Toys Hill to the south. There is no chapel or church; however there are numerous Grade II listed buildings, the former stables and coach house and linking wall and mounting block to the south west of the house of Foxwold. Similarly, all the buildings (Cottage, Oast House, Piggery and former dairy, now a base camp for private group bookings and working holidays) at Outridge Farm (owned by the National Trust) have Grade II listed building status. The Oast Houses are unique in that the cowls are octagonal, in comparison to the usual conical shape found in both Kent and Sussex.[5]
