Buildings on High Street, between White Hart Road and Moorfield Road.

The white building, nos 102-104, although much altered, originally dates from the late 19th century, when it was called Angle End House, later to be renamed Aynscombe House. It was originally owned by the Harris family, of which George St Pierre Harris, the local architect, was a noted member. For a time it served as Orpington's main Post Office before being replaced as such by the current Post Office, built in 1929 (see TQ4666 : Orpington Post Office). It was then refronted in its current form. It is locally listed.

For its original appearance see LinkExternal link. Note the much narrower street at the time.
