Crayford

Your All In London guide to Crayford

Though many Londoners live blissfully unaware of Crayford, a district situated in Bexleyheath, prehistoric finds prove the area has been populated for at least 200,000 years. St. Paulinus Church, which dates back to 1100, is the oldest standing building. After a period of industrial prosperity in the 19th century Crayford suffered during the Great Depression and later World War II (it is close to the Royal Arsenal); today it forms part of London’s commuter belt and has a healthy retail centre, as well as a greyhound stadium and a theatre. The area has a large Muslim community, evidenced by the opening of a mosque in 2010.
