Conservation areas - Sevenoaks, Brittains Farm

Brittains Farm is situated between Sevenoaks and Riverhead in Brittains Lane, opposite the junction with Braeside Avenue. It is on the edge of the built up area but close to the train station.

Open countryside to the south west of the conservation area extends to the A21. The conservation area lies within the Green Belt, sandwiched between the housing estates on Montreal Park and Croft Way and contains a farmstead that was once part of the historic Montreal Estate.

The conservation area covers 1.5 hectares originally designated in 1974 and was reviewed and redesignated in 2007. It contains five listed buildings and most of the mature trees within the conservation area are covered by tree preservation orders.

A stream flows through the site before disappearing underground below Brittains Lane and north to the Sevenoaks wildlife reserve and the River Darent.
