Wrotham (pronounced root-em) is a village on the Pilgrims' Way in Kent, at the foot of the North Downs. It is one mile north of Borough Green and approximately five miles east of Sevenoaks. It is between the M20 and M26 motorways.
Wrotham Heath is an offshoot village located on a heath of the same name. The heath was once an area of wholly common land, south-east of Wrotham itself.
Wrotham Hill to the north was a main measuring point for the eighteenth-century trigonometric survey linking the Greenwich Royal Observatory with the Paris Observatory. This Anglo-French Survey (1784–1790) was led by General William Roy.
