Early development grew up around Grove Park railway station in the 19th century, though there had been settlements located here since Celtic times. Much of it consists of a housing estate built by the Metropolitan Borough of Lewisham in the 1920s. A workhouse was built in the area in 1902. After use by the Army during the First World War it became Grove Park hospital, which has now been redeveloped as a housing estate. There are a small number of public parks in the area, the largest of which is Chinbrook Meadows, through which the River Quaggy flows northward.
