Mottingham: A well-connected part of London

Mottingham: A well-connected part of LondonIndividuals considering a property to rent in Mottingham can look forward to living in a well-connected part of London.

The district bridges the two boroughs of Bromley and Greenwich and residents can get to the city centre or the lovely countryside of Kent with ease. From Mottingham railway station, people can board a direct train to Charing Cross, while the Grove Park and Elmstead stations are also very accessible.

Historically the location was an additional district to Eltham. In 1866 the development of the railway line increased its importance and so more houses were built. In recent times, there have been a number of brown field property developments, replacing old schools, pubs and other businesses in an effort to gentrify the area.

There are a number of interesting landmarks worth visiting in and around the area, including the Tudor Barn. The Grade II listed structure is around 500 years old and has a moat, but now functions as a bar and restaurant. Alternatively, individuals could look to take in the sights of Eltham Palace. For several hundred years English monarchs liked to reside here and it acts a great monument. 

The Woodlands Trust is another location that people lucky enough to live in the region may consider visiting. There is plenty of open land to enjoy, while there are foxes, bats, skylarks. Three distinctive walks have been outlined for those hoping to stretch their legs at the weekend in a gorgeous setting.

Many individuals will be interested in what shopping facilities are present in the district. For those looking something nearby, Kimeridge Cross and Mottingham Village can meet their needs. However, anyone interested in big-name stores such as Marks & Spencer can head down to Bromley.

In terms of schooling, the facilities at the Eltham College are described as excellent. It takes on roughly 620 pupils for the senior school and 200 for the junior school. Before sixth form, however, it only allows boys. Mottingham Primary School is another option for people to consider and this can cater for 258 pupils. All in all, there are 23 learning facilities for families to choose from.

Those keen to get involved in the community can join one of two groups - Horn Park Community Association or the Middle Park Community Centre. Both of these centres organise activities for residents. The latter also has a parent and toddler group and a toy library.

The district is also part of an effort by Bromley Council to embrace recycling. Thanks to the hard work put in by everyone in the community, it has become only the second borough to achieve a mark of over 50 per cent for recycling household waste in the whole of London.

Councillor Colin Smith, executive councillor for environment, is delighted with the achievement. "It is with huge thanks for Bromley residents' collective support and understanding of the need to recycle more because of the financial benefits it brings, that the borough has achieved this noteworthy milestone," he added.
