As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Abbey Wood.
History of Abbey Wood
Abbey Wood is in Greenwich, southeast London, on the south bank of the River Thames. It is situated 11.9 miles from central London. Abbey Wood is named after the ancient woodlands that surround the remains of Lesnes Abbey, founded in 1178, for the Augustine Order, during the reign of King Henry II, (r.1554-1189). However, the abbey ran into financial difficulties and never became a large community. During the reign of King Henry VIII (r.1509-1547), an order was made in 1525 for Cardinal Wolsey to close the abbey. This order was required, to suppress monasteries of less than seven inmates.
From the mid to late 19th century, Abbey Wood remained rural and consisted of only a few cottages and two pubs, with a population of around 100. However, in 1849, the Abbey Wood railway station was opened, and this was followed by the advent of the North Kent Line.
In the 1950s, the council built the Abbey Wood Estate. This development proved a success, with further industrial building and more growth in housing. Currently, more than half the households are owner-occupied. Abbey Wood's population now stands at just over 13,000.
