The Blackheath Society

Blackheath, with its Village and adjacent Heath, is a unique London environment.   The Blackheath Society, one of the country's oldest amenity societies, formed in 1937, exists to preserve and enhance our area.   Please join us in helping to do so.   In this site you can see what we do, and how you can help.

Public Meeting of the BJWP


Tuesday 23rd February 7.30 pm


At The Bakehouse,

behind the Age Exchange


The Blackheath Joint Working Party (BJWP) is attended by councillors and officials from the London Borough of Lewisham and the Royal Borough of Greenwich as well as representatives from the Blackheath, Greenwich and Westcombe Societies and local environmentalists. 


The meeting is an opportunity to discuss the future care and use of the Heath and any related matters that may be of concern.  Once again this year there will be £15,000 from the OnBlackheath Festival to be spent on enhancing the Heath and proposals will be taken at the meeting for the BJWP to decide at a later date. If you have any suggestions for new projects or any queries please email  and do please also let us know.



New Cultural Heritage Trail

All Saints’ Church have published a new Cultural Heritage Trail for Blackheath Village.  They have done so to promote a greater interest in and understanding of the contribution of Victorian philanthropists to the cultural, religious and educational inheritance in Blackheath Village, most of which we still enjoy today.  It is part of the Piping Up! programme to celebrate the restoration of the historic organ in All Saints’ Church, and is partly funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Pick up a copy at Age Exchange, All Saints’ Church, or The Conservatoire.   Or download and print your own copy here, printing front and back, and folding the paper twice to make a leaflet.  Further details can be found by visiting
