Malcolm Scott has established an excellent Facebook group which has a vast selection of images available. Look for Horton Kirby and South Darenth LHS  on Facebook, despite the name, there are many images of Sutton at Hone and Hawley available, and the comments and images added by members are well worth a read

Another Facebook group worth joining is Swanley, Horton Kirby & Hextable Past and Present  as there is also some Sutton at Hone and Hawley content.

English Heritage has a project  Images of England which showed photos of listed buildings around the country, just search for Sutton at Hone, and you will see images of the various listed buildings, church, walls etc in the area.  If you click on the link to Historic England’s Archive, you will find a list of the images held for Sutton at Hone and Hawley, and there are a number of images shown of the various mills in the parish.  Please note that these images are all owned by Historic England and cannot be reproduced without permission.

    Good Morning,
    Happy New Year to you, I am researching the history of past Kent Fire Brigades and wondered if you had any information or photos on the Sutton at Hone Fire Brigade.
    Many Thanks for your help and time

    Kindest regards

      I think you may just be in luck.
      I have recently been sorting out a box of photos left to me by my mother and came across a picture of my grandfather – Edward Alfred Davis – showing him as part of the crew with the Sutton-at-Hone fire engine.
      He lived in the village from 1895 (St John’s Terrace) and was in the army in WWI and so I think this photo is probably prior to this ?? Anyway, I am sure you can better date it than me so if you let me have your e mail address I will happily scan it and send it to you.
      Incidentally, from the 1920’s he and my grandmother had Davis’ – the paper shop – on the main road until 1954 and both he,my mother and myself all went to the old village school in Sutton-at-Hone. My husband also comes from the village (Balmoral Road).
      I just happened to come across your posting this afternoon when I was doing some research myself on the history of the village.
