Frittenden is a quiet Kent village just off the main road from Cranbrook to Maidstone. It’s handy for a traditional music gathering partly because of its facilities, which include the splendid Bell & Jorrocks pub and a village hall, but also because the villagers enjoy social events and have supported a range of music and dancing events over the years. It was also the home for many years of Kent’s notorious Mr Jorrocks morris team.
For those travelling by train, Frittenden is just a few miles by taxi or friend’s car from Staplehurst railway station, which is on the main line from London to Ashford, or from Tonbridge to Ashford if you’re coming from the South Coast or from the western side of London.

One thought on “Where is Frittenden?”
I just wanted to check re. the Saturday lunchtime pub singing session – is it at a pub in Frittenden or is it at The Bull at Linton?
