Description:
The Greenwich Park branch was a railway line in southern London, built by London, Chatham and Dover Railway (LCDR) from Nunhead to Greenwich Park.

It ran from a junction at Nunhead, in a generally north-east direction, to a terminus on the Greenwich High Road, close to the north-west corner of Greenwich Park. The line was approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) in length. The original plan was for the line to terminate at the Woolwich Dockyard. There is a short tunnel which carried the railway under the A2 at Blackheath Hill. The entrance to the Brockley Lane station in still visible at Brockley Cross.

There were four stations:

All the stations were closed on 1 January 1917, during WWI, and the line beyond Lewisham Road was abandoned on 1 January 1926 by Southern Railway.

Southern Railway having absorbed the previously separate LCDR and South Eastern Railway (SER) sought to link its two networks to enable cross London freight. The section of the "Greenwich Park branch" as far as Lewisham Road station was reopened on 7 July 1929, connecting to the SER lines at Lewisham. The line was electrified in September 1935 , allowing passenger trains from Dartford to access Victoria from 30 September 1935 (see Bexleyheath Line).
