Chislehurst, an extensive parish and village in the county of Kent, 9 miles S.E. of London, on the South Eastern Railway. Occupying with its offshoot West Chislehurst the picturesque slopes that culminate in a broad common 300 feet above the sea-level, the locality has become of late years a favourite residence for the better class of City men, and numbers of handsome villas have sprung up in the neighbourhood. Camden House, close to the common, afforded a refuge to Napoleon III. after his fall in 1870, and here he died in 1873.
