Home > Bexley


Situated in south-east London and bordered by the districts of Bromley, Greenwich, Dartford and the Thames, the London borough of Bexley had been very much a rural district right up until the early twentieth century, in fact the name Bexley literally means 'clearing in the box wood'. In his childhood, former Prime Minister Edward Heath spent three years at school in the Crayford area of Bexley, and was to return in later years when the borough became his first parliamentary constituency as an MP.

Formed in 1965 when Bexley (Kent), Erith, Crayford and Sidcup were combined, Bexley has a population of 218,000 and is governed by a Labour-run council with a slim majority (they have 32 councillors to the Conservatives' 30); the borough also has two twin towns in Arnsberg (Germany) and Evry (France).
