Bexley - home of St. Mary's Church whose octagonal cone spire balances precariously on top of a truncated pyramid.

Bexley is a place in south east London in the London Borough of Bexley. It was once an ancient parish of Kent. It is located on the banks of the River Cray south of the Roman Road Watling Street. There are two parts to the town - Old Bexley, still with the appearance of a village, and more recent suburban areas that blend into Bexleyheath where the main administrative offices of the London Borough of Bexley and council chamber are located.

Bexley railway station was opened in September 1866. Farm produce formed much of the goods traffic in the station's early years, much of it grown in local fields. Its goods sidings closed in 1963 and the signal box closed in 1970. The clapboard buildings of the original station are well preserved.

The Underground Map

The Underground Map is a website dedicated to some of the more obscure pieces of London Town (as well as some of the more well-known places).

The Underground Map project is creating a decade-by-decade series of historical maps of the area which lies within London's M25 ring.

From the 1800s until the 1950s, you can see how London grew from a city which only reached as far as Park Lane into the post war megapolis we know today.

Find the streets of London by clicking STREETS above or explore the maps by clicking MAP.
