History

It took its name from Godwin Fot, a local Anglo-Saxons landowner recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, and from the River Cray that passes through the village. It lay on the old Maidstone Road (now bypassed by the A20 road (England)) leading from London to north Kent. Until the 20th century, Foots Cray dominated the nearby, less ancient hill-top hamlet of Sidcup. The combined area was designated as the Urban District of Foots Cray in 1902. Soon, however, the two settlements' fortunes were reversed, as Foots Cray's traditional industries declined after the First World War, and Sidcup grew rapidly as a commuter town after a railway was built linking it to central London. In 1921 this change was reflected in the renaming of Foots Cray Urban District to Sidcup Urban District. In 1965 both areas became part of the London Borough of Bexley.

The estate of Foots Cray Place was rebuilt about 1754 for Bourchier Cleeve, on the site of the manor, as a Palladian mansion that was attributed to Isaac Ware; it was illustrated in this form in ''Vitruvius Britannicus'' iv (1777, pls. 8-10).Howard Colvin, ''A Biographical Dictionary of British Architects 1600-1840'', 3rd ed. (Yale University Press), ''s.v.'' "Isaac Ware", under "Doubtful and attributed works". Foots Cray Place was remodelled for Benjamin Harenc (1792) by the minor London architect Henry Hakewill,Henry Hakewill (1771-1830), a pupil of John Yenn, became architect to the trustees of Rugby School; he is buried at North Cray (Colvin 1995 ''s.v.'' "Henry Hakewill"). who further remodelled it in 1823 for Nicholas Vansittart, 1st Baron Bexley, who was Chancellor of the Exchequer. Further works were carried out for Lord Bexley by another London architect of equally modest reputation, '''John William Hiort''', who also built Bexley's London house in Great George Street, Westminster.John William Hiortt (1772-1861) was an architect attached to the Office of Works, where he was much employed in designing occasional structures for ceremonies; he designed some ancillary structures at Claremont House, Surrey, for Princess Charlotte, and patented bricks for designing circular chimney flues that were used at Buckingham Palace. (Colvin 1995, ''s.v.'' "John William Hiort"). After a fire in 1949, it was demolished in 1950.Colvin 1995, ''s.v.'' "Henry Hakewell". Now only the stable block remains, but the grounds, known as Foots Cray Meadows, provide a valuable public green space in this south-eastern suburb of London. This 89 hectare park was formed in the early 19th century from two mid-18th-century landscaped parks. It is listed by English Heritage as a Grade II historic park.An impression of the surviving landscape can be obtained from the [http://www.hidden-london.com/footscray.html Hidden London website], and it is a Local Nature Reserve.{{cite web|url=http://www.gigl.org.uk/igigl/siteDetails.aspx?sID=M106&sType=sinc |title= The River Cray
