Crayford is a town in the London Borough of Bexley, 16 miles from London Charing Cross. Crayford was an important bridging point in Roman times across the River Cray, a tributary of the River Darent, which is itself a tributary of the River Thames. Nearby Hall Place was built for the Lord Mayor of London in around 1537 and is a scheduled ancient monument lying between Crayford and Bexley. It has gardens with the River Cray running through plus a plant nursery, a cafe and restaurant and the silkworks shop formerly located in the David Evans factory. The main leisure facilities are Crayford Stadium greyhound race track and "The Bear and Ragged Staff" public house, well known as a venue for live music. Opposite the Bear and Ragged Staff there is a small parade containing a few small shops and public gardens which the River Cray passes through. There are also shops at the Tower Retail Park opposite Crayford Town Hall. Crayford Stadium has races every Monday and Saturday nights and includes a bar, cafe and restaurant. There are also three other pubs in the town, the Duke of Wellington on London Road and the Crayford Arms and Dukes Head on Crayford High St hill.
