Beckenham Road, Beckenham, 1903

Beckenham Road, Beckenham, 1903

Developed following the break up of the Beckenham Lodge Estate in the 1880s these houses were typical of the second phase of Beckenham's development.

Smaller than earlier houses around the Junction station but still substantial, they were popular with professionals such as solicitors and doctors, although some were lived in by people with private incomes.

Mostly divided into flats in the 1950s some have been replaced by modern blocks or substantially altered, while a few still retain original features.
