Bromley North Station – Heritage Building Profile

The original timber buildings which formed Bromley North Station were rebuilt in Neo-Classical style, in 1925, by the Chief Architect of Southern Railway, James Robb Scott. This was just prior to the electrification of the line.  Charmingly, Wiki refers to it being 47 chains away from Charing Cross, here.

The railway, both here and at Bromley South, altered Bromley’s existence as a market town. A population of 5,500 in 1861 had grown to 15,000 by 1881, and numbered 33,500 by 1911. By then Bromley had become an outer London suburb. Turn right and walk along East Street.
