The centre is operated by the Friends of Foots Cray Meadows (FFCM) in partnership with the London Borough of Bexley. The hub is designed to provide details of our history and exactly what can be enjoyed by visitors to the 97 hectares (240 acres) of open grassland, woodland and wetland.


The Meadows are recognised as an important location for nature conservation within Greater London – and in 2000 some parts (including all of the river) were declared a local nature reserve.

The FFCM offers frequent Friends Wellness Walks, lasting approximately one and a half hours, taking in the beautiful surroundings.

The centre – a valuable resource containing posters, books, leaflets and reference sources – is located behind the privately refurbished Stable Block at the end of the lane accessed from the Rectory Lane, Sidcup, entrance to the Meadows, which has parking facilities.

FFCM members are present at the building for a couple of hours on the first Saturday of each month (March to November) when members make themselves available to provide information to visitors.

There are data about specific areas within the Meadows and a wealth of photographs and maps detailing our history. Notice Boards are updated frequently, mainly to give notice of events and meetings being run by the FFCM.


Foots Note

The information centre was formally changing rooms for players using football pitches that lay close by on the Meadows. The building also included a public toilet.
