Bexley Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Kent...

To the west of Dartford, the original village was remote, supremely rural and important only for agriculture. The coming of the railways changed all that and Bexley quickly expanded. Nevertheless it has a long history dating back to 814 when the King of the Mercians granted land here to Wulfrud, Archbishop of Canterbury. Tools and other artefacts from the new Stone Ages, the Bronze and Iron Ages and Roman times have been found. Bexley has some magnificent houses – including Red House, designed by artist William Morris. The foundations of 12th century Lesness Abbey are also on view.
