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.
Join us for Heath Clean Up Day
We are continuing a Society tradition with a planned Heath Clean Day on Saturday October 1st. We will be working with Lewisham and Glendale colleagues to give the Heath an extra tidy up.
We look forward to seeing as many volunteers as possible to join us at the Talbot Place Changing Rooms at 2pm
Please bring gardening gloves!”
"You should go to Blackheath First"
... as Sherlock Holmes says to Dr. Watson and Detective Inspector Lestrade in "The Adventure of the Norwood Builder" by Arthur Conan Doyle.
On Thursday 13th October, Roger Johnson, Editor for the District Messenger, journal of the Sherlock Holmes Society and noted scholar of all things Sherlockian, will share with us many interesting insights about Conan Doyle and his famous detective's connections with Blackheath.
Join us for a glass of wine from 7 pm. The talk will begin at 7.30pm at St. Mary's Halls, Cresswell Park, Blackheath Village, SE3 9RD. Tickets are available from Eventbrite.com at £10 per person or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Elementary!
Blackheath Village Archive Images
Tranquil Vale, Westside c 1905
Over 1200 images of Blackheath Village have been published on our sister website www.blackheatharchive.org.
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 email@example.com if you think you have something you would like to add (original photos will, of course, be returned after scanning by the team).
