Barnehurst is a town and district in South East London inside the London Borough of Bexley. It's north east of Bexleyheath, and is 13 miles east south-east of Charing Cross. It's separated from North Bexleyheath by the A220 Erith Road.
The town was established following the sale of land in 1881 to construct the Bexleyheath loop line in between Lewisham and Dartford. Its name hails from the name of the railway station, which was named after Colonel Barne, who owned a nearby property and was vice-chairman of the railway company. Right now, the railway station runs trains in between London Charing Cross, London Victoria or London Cannon Street, via Lewisham and Eltham towards the west and Dartford railway station to the east. There are 12 trains per hour through the week; on Sundays, there are 4 trains per hour. The railway station was openedto stimulate the building of homes. The Barnehurst Estate was constructed in 1926 which housed lots of individuals.
As well as the railway station, Barnehurst is served by 5 buses, 1 of which goes to the popular Bluewater Shopping Centre. There are hardly any purchasing or leisure opportunities within the town, so people typically visit surrounding areas employing public transport links or the primary roads.
Barnehurst is dwelling towards the non-league football club Phoenix Sports FC, which plays at Phoenimx Sports Ground.
