In 2017, Sevenoaks Town Council was delighted to announce that it had secured a £755,600 Heritage Lottery Fund grant towards the refurbishment of the Bat & Ball Station building, thanks to money raised by National Lottery players. This was the first project in the Town Council’s ambitious plan to regenerate Northern Sevenoaks, moving onto the newly built Bat & Ball Centre.
The Bat & Ball Station was the first railway station in Sevenoaks and used by Queen Victoria when visiting Knole. It has been boarded up since 1992 and gradually deteriorated.
Since the restoration, the station buildings now provide
