Sidcup originated as a tiny hamlet on the road from London to Maidstone. According to Edward Hasted, "Thomas de Sedcopp was owner of this estate in the 35th year of king Henry VI. [i.e. in the 1450s] as appears by his deed."[2] Hasted described Sidcup in the latter part of the 18th century as "a small street of houses, among which is an inn of much resort", referring to the former Black Horse pub on the high street.[3]

It is believed that an "officer of engineers" built the first part in the shape of a 'star fort with angle bastions' and parts of 3 of these bastions - less than eight feet wide - may still be seen (one of them is still complete). Their position is responsible for the peculiar shape of the older (south-west) part of the house, both inside and outside.

Sidcup is served by Transport for London bus routes 51, 160, 229, 233, 269, 286, 321, 492, B14 and R11. [14]
