Bromley Rural District

Bromley was a rural district in north-west Kent, England from 1894 to 1934. Its area now forms part of the London Borough of Bromley in Greater London. It did not include the main settlement of Bromley; which constituted the Municipal Borough of Bromley. Mottingham formed an exclave of the district.

  • Chelsfield
  • Chislehurst
  • Cudham
  • Downe
  • Farnborough
  • Foots Cray
  • Hayes
  • Keston
  • Knockholt
