I don’t know the name of what it used to be called when it wasn’t abandoned. I cannot find any history related to the site. The only thing that seemed to come up online was a graffiti artist who goes by the name of “Big Trev” gathered a group of other graffiti artists, and supposably cleaned the place up a few years ago as it had become a dumping ground for flytippers.

Very little is left, it really is just a graffitied burnt shell. The place looks like it’s been abandoned for 20 odd years, and the fact that it is in a very populated area its kind of expected. There are three buildings that are all accessible as there has been a lot of people going and making “urbex trails” aka trampled down brambles and greenery. A very relaxed explore. A group of kids turned up and started talking to us about locations in Bromley that they had visited. An advantage to this explore was that it wasn’t ridiculously far away from us either of where we were. I had no idea that there was a house on the site but again that was a burnt out ruin so that was disappointing. I have heard of a few people been lucky with the gate open. We was not lucky and had to squeeze through a very thin gap and still to this day I will never understand how I did it. The place was rather cool because of the graffiti but was an ultimate derp really. On with the photos.

That's colourful.

Orchard Sports Ground / Orchard Lodge Sports Ground.
From a 2004 council document -
The site is a large former Inner London Education Authority (ILEA) sports ground extending to some 13.4 hectares (33.4acres). Within this area there is a floodlit hard-play area of approx 1,500 sq/m (16,145 sq/ft), 12 tennis courts, changing rooms, a caretaker’s house and grounds maintenance accommodation. The Council’s Education department did use the facility for a number of years, although use gradually reduced and, it is understood, finally finished in 1998.
