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


Tranquil Vale

Tranquil Vale, Westside c 1905

Over 1200 images of Blackheath Village have been published on our sister website

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 if you think you have something you would like to add (original photos will, of course, be returned after scanning by the team).
