It is situated on the Sevenoaks road, and includes the hamlets of Green-street Green and Lock's Bottom. A market was formerly held here. It is in the Metropolitan Police district, and jurisdiction of the Central Criminal Court. The Bromley Union poorhouse stands in this parish. The living is a curacy annexed to the rectory of Chelsfield, in the diocese of Canterbury. The church, dedicated to St. Giles, was rebuilt in 1639, the ancient structure having been destroyed by a tempest. The charities produce about £2 per annum. There is an infant school. Benjamin Badger, Esq., is lord of the manor. A fair is held on the 12th September. The Long family takes the title of baron from this place."
