Abbey Wood station
Abbey Wood station
The North Kent line through here was opened in 1849, and although there was at that time no development around here, Abbey Wood station opened at the same time, as the nearby Lesnes Abbey was seen as a tourist destination. The building of many houses in the later Victorian years, and then the large LCC Abbey Wood estate of the 1930s, ensured that Abbey Wood became an important commuter station.
