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.
