ROAD RAGE - 50 years of plans to build motorways through Blackheath

In the 1960s the GLC planned to build a motorway through Blackheath. It would have destroyed much of the local area including the Village. This was just one of the plans to build major roads through Blackheath developed between the 1930s and the 1980s. Paul Wright, Blackheath Society member will tell a story of low cunning on the part of the planners and resolute opposition by local residents.

7 for 7.30pm at St Mary’s Halls, Cresswell Park.

Tickets £10 from www.eventbrite.com,  includes a glass of wine.
