Crook Log is both a locality on the line of Watling Street (A207) within the London Borough of Bexley, and also the name of the roadside Inn at the centre of the locality. The Inn dates from at least 1808, and possibly from considerably earlier as a building of that name appears in a 1738 document.
It is a settlement lying between and now somewhat obscured by suburban development extending between Welling and Bexleyheath 10.9 miles (17.5 km) east south-east of Charing Cross. The key landmarks here at the beginning of the 21st century are a licensed restaurant and a Sports Centre. The latter was recently expanded to include an indoor swimming pool; the Splashworld swimming pool building across the road from the Sports Centre was then demolished, the site being redeveloped by Countryside Properties with 52 apartments eccentrically branded as "The Old Baths". Other nearby public amenities include a well-equipped youth centre and a new adult education centre. For younger learners the Crook Log Primary School stands to the south of the straight A207, whereas to its north a small guest house also keeps the name Crook Log in the public eye.
