The Harrow Inn public house is mentioned in a description of the hamlet of Abbey Wood in the late 1860s when it was one of the very few buildings. It is at the junction of Abbey Wood Road with Wilton Road. The A2041 Harrow Manorway flyover across the railway can be seen in the distance on the left. Various on-line pub guides describe the clientele of the pub as local. Demolished in 2009 and now a derelict site. Photographer: Nigel Cox.
Between Plumstead to the west and Erith to the east, Abbey Wood takes its name from the nearby Lesnes Abbey and Bostall Woods.
