Named after the ancient woodlands that surround the ruins of Lesnes Abbey, Abbey Wood is located within the London Boroughs of Greenwich and Bexley. It is a site of geological interest due to its famous discoveries of shark teeth, remains of crocodile, turtle and fish bones, and the highly fossiliferous shell beds are often visited for digging.
While fossil findings have been popular, living in Abbey Wood has long been overlooked due to its poor transport links. However, the development of Crossrail
has drawn a lot of attention to the area. The Crossrail project is rejuvenating Abbey Wood’s rail station which opened in 1849 and is set to provide up to 12 fast trains an hour, taking only 11 minutes to get to Canary Wharf, 25 minutes to get into Central London and 51 minutes to travel to Heathrow airport.
Traditionally you can find a mix of homes in Abbey Wood, from modern former council terrace houses to semi-detached Thirties houses and Victorian terrace houses.
