One of the area's most significant and historic buildings is Foots Cray Place. Constructed in 1754, it posed a stunning example of a Palladian villa-style building. Unfortunately, during WWII, the villa suffered bomb damage and was demolished in the 1950s after a significant fire in 1949.

Large parts of the grounds belonging to the manor are now a recreational area known as Foots Cray Meadows. The meadows offer an abundance of green spaces spread over many acres of woodland grassland, and there is a wide variety of wildlife.
