The beautiful and historic market town of West Malling is just one out of many treasures to be found in the idyllic county of Kent in the United Kingdom. Kent is home to some of the most historic towns in the United Kingdom so it is no small feat to declare West Malling as one of the most phenomenal areas in the county when it comes to historical significance.

One of the most impressive edifices in West Malling is without a doubt the famed St. Leonard's Tower. Dating back to the days when Norman rulers ran the law of the land, Leonard's Tower is one of the oldest buildings that can still be seen standing. Erected in 1086, the tower was in fact built by none other than the real Saint Leonard. Saint Leonard was obviously no slouch in the architectural department because he also built the equally impressive Tower of London as well as two different castles in Colchester and Rochester. He must have been the patron saint of stone!

All joking aside, there is no end to the phenomenal manmade creations that dot the landscape of West Malling. The city is also home to one of the first abbeys in England that was made for Benedictine nuns. The presence of an abbey isn't a radical concept in and of itself because nearly every town in the United Kingdom that dates back to the Saxon days has an abbey of some form. West Malling, however, has two abbeys and both are still standing proudly to this day. The other abbey, Malling Abbey, is a bit newer but it is yet another exclusively female abbey, serving Anglican nuns in this instance. Though it would be a bit presumptuous to declare West Malling one of the earliest towns to give women equal prominence in the world sphere, evidence shows that the town was forward-thinking for nearly all of its existence.

As old as the town of West Malling is, it is rather fascinating to see that it is also one of the wealthiest towns in the entire continent. Recent surveys have found that West Malling has the highest income of the area and the highest incidence of households earning over one hundred thousand pounds per year. Many people say that the reason that West Malling is so financially well off is because of the fact that the town is a mere thirty five miles from London. Its location does place it as the perfect suburban distance from the most important town on the continent and one can definitely see how it would be very expensive to live in such a fortuitous location. West Malling is the perfect distance away from the seedier elements that plague places close to London while also not being too far away to take advantage of the quick commute to downtown. This would be shortchanging the town, however, because a massive amount of fascinating history has occurred in the town long before London became the metropolis that it is. Either way, though, a visit to West Malling is a worthy endeavor that should be undertaken by any person lucky enough to live near the area.
