Housing on brickfield belonging to John Earley Cook.In 1883 sold part to London and South Western Railway and this became a siding where London refuse was brought in to make bricks. Later taken over by Benton who found the site was too damp and it was used by Canadian Soldiers in both world wars and closed in 1960.

Level Crossing called Cooks Crossing because that was where the siding went to the brick field.
