Farnborough is a settlement in the London Borough of Bromley. It is a suburban development located 13.4 miles (21.6 km) southeast of Charing Cross


The village name derives from Fearnbiorginga, meaning village among the ferns on the hill. Old records date from 862 when Ethelbert, King of Wessex, gave away 950 acres at Farnborough. The village was not included in the Domesday Book survey, but the manor existed in the Middle Ages and was held in the 1200s by Simon de Montfort.

The village evolved on the main road from London to Hastings which originally ran via Church Road and Old Hill (to the south of the village). The George pub existed in the 16th century and was used as a coaching inn. Coaches and horses were accommodated later.

Farnborough formed a civil parish in the Ruxley hundred of Kent. In 1840 the parish was included in the Metropolitan Police District. It was part of the Bromley rural sanitary district and went on to form part of the Bromley Rural District from 1894 to 1934. The parish was abolished in 1934 as part of a county review order, following the Local Government Act 1929, and its area was split between the Municipal Borough of Bromley (3 acres) and Orpington Urban District (1,426 acres). The entire area has formed part of the London Borough of Bromley in Greater London since 1965

2008 aeroplane crash

Main article: 2008 Farnborough plane crash

On 30 March 2008, at about 14:40, a Cessna Citation 501 aircraft crashed into a house in Romsey Close, Farnborough. Five people, two pilots and three passengers, were aboard the aircraft. There were no survivors in the aircraft, but no casualties on the ground. The aircraft had taken off from Biggin Hill, on the way to Pau in south-west France. The aircraft was attempting to return to Biggin Hill when it crashed, shortly after the pilot had issued a Mayday call. Amongst those killed were Eurosport commentator and former Touring Car driver David Leslie and ex-Le Mans driver Richard Lloyd. An investigation has been launched by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch.
