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.
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
Jimmy Mizen Foundation Good Hope Festival
The Good Hope Festival intended to take place on the Heath this coming August has been postponed until 2016. The organisers advise that this is based on sound financial reasoning.
