Bellegrove Road

Beyond Shooter's Hill we come to Welling, which with Bexley Heath EXtends for the next two miles along the Dover Road. Here the latter is too narrow for traffic requirements. It is being considerably widened in places, and unsightly rows of mean houses have lately been pulled down and replaced with new blocks of shops. The removal of the tramways in 1935 in favour of the more up-to-date trolley buses has further eased the traffic congestion at Bexley Heath. T

In the early 1930s the Bellegrove Park Building late was developed to the configuration of Bellegrove Park, a small country seat on the southern side of the Road.
