Crook Log is a locality around Watling Street (A207) within the London Borough of Bexley. It is also the name of a roadside Inn at the centre of the locality that dates from at least 1808, and possibly from considerably earlier as a building of that name appears in a 1738 document.[1]

It lies at the western edge of Bexleyheath along the boundary with Welling. All three places merge with no clear separation points. Crook Log is approximately 10.9 miles (17.5 km) east south-east of Charing Cross, the traditional centre of London. Key landmarks are the Crook Log Inn, now a licensed restaurant, on the southern side of the A207 and a sports centre on the northern side. In 2005 the Crook Log leisure centre was expanded to include an eight–lane 25 metre indoor swimming pool, a teaching pool and changing facilities. The new centre was opened by Her Majesty the Queen on 26 July 2005.[2] An existing and long established swimming pool across the road, at that time known as Splashworld, was then demolished. The site was redeveloped with 52 apartments and the complex was named "The Old Baths". Other nearby public amenities include a youth centre and an adult education centre. Also in the area are Crook Log Primary School and The Crook Log guest house.

An amateur theatre called the Edward Alderton Theatre is in Crook Log. Actor Roger Moore and world heavyweight boxing champion Lennox Lewis are former residents of this area.[3]


Crook Log Primary School is the only school in Crook Log.[4]
