There has been a settlement of some kind at Farningham since at least the stone age.
There is also a lot of evidence of settlements from the bronze & iron ages.
The Romans liked it there so much they built villas all over the valley.
The image in these signs is taken from the Bayeux Tapestry & is of Wadard.
He was the commandeer of provisions from the locals during the battle of Hastings.
He lived in one of Farningham’s four manors.
These very old photo’s were unfortunately taken with an old camera on a very grey day.
