Orpington is a suburban town within the London Borough of Bromley. It forms the south eastern edge of Greater London with the boundary of Kent. The High Street and adjacent Walnuts Shopping Centre contain a wide selection of high-street shops. Orpington College is the tallest building in Orpington, and was built in 1972. There is a market held in front of Orpington College three days a week. There are larger retail outlets in the industrial estate on Cray Avenue and Sevenoaks Way in nearby St Mary Cray. A varied selection of leisure pursuits can be undertaken at The Walnuts Leisure Centre, just east of the High Street. Golf can be played at Chelsfield Lakes Golf Club. The historic parish church, "All Saints", stands upon pre-Norman foundations. It is Early English in style, but some Saxon work is visible. The church was enlarged in 1957. Priory Gardens, set back from the High Street, contains the public library. The Priory itself contains Bromley Museum. The Priory is a fine example of a medieval hall house, reputedly linked to King Cnut. The pond in the gardens is the source of the River Cray. Other local attractions include the Crofton Roman Villa, next to Orpington Station, and Scadbury Moated Manor House and Nature Reserve in St. Paul’s Cray.
