Falconwood, a suburb in the borough of Bexley, got a rail connection fairly late – it had to wait until 1936 for its first station. It sits on the Bexleyheath Line in Travelcard Zone 4, just 10 miles from London, and has good links to the capital, with regular trains to Charing Cross, Cannon Street and Victoria. Other destinations include Barnehurst and Dartford. The brick-built station itself is a low, austere building with a modernist feel, but it’s lightened by a curved canopy and bright, cream-coloured signage. Falconwood is situated to the east of Eltham and is mostly a suburban area, but with plenty of green space to balance the housing developments. London’s Green Chain walking route passes through the area, and continues through Shepherdleas Wood, Oxleas Wood, Eltham Common, Eltham Park North and Eltham Park South. Since 1954, the area has had a vibrant Community Centre, which houses the Falconwood and District Horticultural Society.
