High Street, West Wickham, 1968



Not all suburban shops are purpose built. These on the corner of Wickham Court Road were converted from a large Victorian house by William Teulon dating mainly from 1856.

Following the death of the occupant Margaret McAndrew in 1925 the estate was sold to a builder, George Spencer who, unusually, preserved the house, turning the ground floor into shops and the upper floors into flats.

Originally the High Street had been at the back of the house.
