Rangefield Road, BR1

Place name

In the late 19th Century there was a rifle range near Holloway Farm, hence the name Rangefield Road. Until the early 1920s the area was part of Lee Estate of the Baring banking dynasty. Holloway Farm was some 224 acres. Its farmhouse stood on the eastern side of Bromley Road, until the road was moved. It is believed to have began life as a gate house for Bromley Hill House, now the Bromley Court Hotel.
