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.
Blackheath Village Archive Images
Go Live on Friday 25th March
Tranquil Vale, Westside c 1905
Over 1200 images of Blackheath Village will be be published on our sister website www.blackheatharchive.org over the next few weeks.
The first batch (280 images) show Royal Parade, Montpelier Vale and Tranquil Vale.
Many thanks to the scanning team of Sue Shields, Helen Doris, Jo Swadkin, Hilary Weedon and Philip Smith for the many hours of hard work they have put in.
Also thanks, of course, to Neil Rhind without whom the archive would not exist.
We are happy to see the archive continue to grow and are very grateful for the recent contributions of David Warren, Frank Smith, Roger Marshall and Olive Amos. We always welcome new additions, (particularly of Blackheath in the 1960s and 1970s).
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you have something you would like to add (original photos will, of course, be returned after scanning by the team).
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 www.pipingup.org.uk

Walking the Heath is now available. Copies cost £7.50 (+£1.50 postage) but members are entitled to one copy at £5.00.
