1840HistoryRusthall CommonColbran's Tunbridge Wells

In the neighbourhood of Bishop's Down, a new Park has been commenced, called Nevill Park, the situation of which for building, has been happily chosen. It commands a most charming prospect, and its short distance from the chalybeate springs, renders it a particularly desirable residence for those who wish to derive benefit from the waters. There is a pleasant walk through this park from Bishop's Down to Rusthall Common, and four handsome houses are erected here. One of them, the property of the Rev. Mr. Bramley, is at present the residence of Lord Viscount Nevill. The gardens belonging to it are arranged with most exquisite taste, and form a perfect bijou. The views from all parts of the park are varied and extensive, and at each entrance is a remarkably pretty lodge, the rustic appearance of which harmonises well with the surrounding scenery.
