What Kind of Place is Kidbrooke
Kidbrooke is situated in South East London in the region of Greenwich, North West of Eltham and about 7.5 miles East South of Charing Cross. The name derives from Kyd Brook - a watercourse that flows from Orpington to Lewisham, and is a part of Quaggy, and a tributary to the River Ravensbourne. The main postcode areas are SE3 and SE9. The area is mostly residential with roads lined with family houses built in the 1930’s, and a number of council estates. A notable deprived council estate was the Ferrier estate, but was demolished and replaced with a new housing estate called Kidbrooke Village. There is one shopping centre - the Blackheath Village, and a few bars and restaurants. Transport links from the area is the A2 road, a quick route to the London Inner Ring Road, the South Circular Road, and M25 London Orbital motorway. There closest railway stations are Blackheath, Eltham and Kidbrooke. Open spaces for recreation are in and around Blackheath. The area has a few schools and south of Ferrier Estate is Sutcliffe Park, which also has a lake that is a flood defense for the area.
