Various ages of buildings in Orpington High Street.

The mock Tudor building on the left was originally the coach house of Mayfield Place, a large house dating from 1750 and set back from the High Street, which was controversially demolished in 1935, after various proposals for municipal use, either as council offices or a library were decided against. When the Mayfield estate was sold in 1927, the coach house was bought by a Mr Percy Wiles and converted for use as a furniture shop, part of the work for which was to make a new front, as seen here.

Boots beyond was built in 1976, replacing a row of three smaller shops previously on the site.

Beyond this is the post office, dating from 1929, and beyond this is the former Woolworths, dating from the 1950s.
