Kidbrooke Lane, Kidbrooke, 1915


A view of Upper Kidbrooke Farm in Kidbrooke Lane and St. James' Church before the farmland was developed for housing very soon after this photograph was taken.

Kidbrooke Lane, with its pretty hedgerows, ran from Blackheath through the field of Kidbrooke to Well Hall at Eltham.

Brook Lane is a surviving fragment of Kidbrooke Lane; the remainder is covered by the Rochester Way which was built as the Shooters Hill bypass in the 1930s.
