A Quick Overview of Shortlands
Shortlands is a suburban village in the London Borough of Bromley, Greater London, England. It is located to the west and south west of the town of Bromley.
- Historically, Shortlands was known as Clay Hill.
- It became known as Shortlands around 1800, after the fields which, at this point of the Ravensbourne river, ran at right angles up the slopes on either side.
- Suburban development began in 1863 with the sale of the Shortlands House estate, making full advantage of the railway station opened in May 1858.
