One of many owner-occupied estates arising during the inter-War housing boom, it was built in the 1930s on hilly farmland south of West Wickham bought by the developers, Morrell Brothers, from Coney Hall Farm. In the previous decade, opposition to road developments adjacent to West Wickham Common and Hayes Common had left the area accessible only by steep and narrow lanes. In Coney Hall's early days. London Transport refused to provide a bus service, and a free private coach service connected the estate to the nearest railway station, Hayes.
The Prime Meridian passes through Coney Hall.
Coney Hall Farm was first mentioned in the 17th century, when its lease stated that the tenant had the sole right to catch coneys (rabbits) on nearby Jackson’s Heath.
Coney Hall is served by several Transport for London bus services connecting it with areas including Biggin Hill, Bromley, Croydon, Eltham, Hayes, Orpington, Purley, New Addington and West Wickham. The closest rail link to Coney Hall is at West Wickham station.
