Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices.
Tonbridge was recorded in the Domesday Book 1087 as Tonebrige, which may indicate a bridge belonging to the estate or manor, or alternatively a bridge belonging to Tunna, a common Anglo-Saxon mans name. Another theory suggests that the name is a contraction of town of bridges, due to the large number of streams the High Street originally crossed.
Until 1870, the Tonbridge name was actually spelt Tunbridge, as shown on old maps that survive. In 1870, this was changed to Tonbridge by the General Post Office due to confusion with nearby Tunbridge Wells, despite Tonbridge being a much older settlement. Tunbridge Wells has always maintained the same spelling.
Tonbridge was the location of the largest cash theft in British criminal history. On 22 February 2006, over £53 million was stolen from the Securitas cash handling depot in Vale Road to the east of the High Street. During the following police investigation, only about half of the money was recovered. On 28 January 2008 five people were convicted of the theft at the Old Bailey.
Jonathan Williams, the footballer for Crystal Palace FC, lives in Tonbridge.
