Transfer from Swanley (BR8) to Gatwick Airport
Swanley evolved very quickly. It featured only 3 properties in 1861, but when the railway was constructed, more and more settlements developed around the railway station. That’s how it received the name Swanley Junction that was later transformed into Swanley Village. Since the railway was opened, Swanley was completely changed. The Swanley Horticultural College was established in 1887. Thus, horticulture became the main industry in the area. The florists’ outlets and local nurseries bloomed and the casual farms offered increasingly more job opportunities. Some of the original pear and apple orchards have survived until date.
Around that time, Swanley became a popular destination for the sick Londoners who were searching for some fresh air away from the London smog. Three major hospitals were constructed at the time: White Oak Hospital (1897), Parkwood Hospital (1893) and Kettlewell Hospital (1885). The Parkwood and Kettlewell Hospitals were used by the poor patients and White Oak used to be specialized in eye diseases. Parkwood and Kettlewell served as military hospitals during the First and Second World Wars. In 1959, White Oak and Kettlewell were closed and Parkwood was closed in the 1960s. Nowadays, Parkwood is the Parkwood Hall School, Kettlewell was transformed into a Roman Catholic Church and White Oak only preserved its gates.
