At this time of year, many of us become a bit preoccupied with the festive celebrations and shopping for presents. The Bromley Civic Society heritage walk is an opportunity for you to enjoy some fresh air, meet some new friends, and learn about the history of the local area.
The next heritage walk takes place this Saturday, 5th December at 10:30am. Those who wish to join should meet outside The Railway Tavern, which is just across from Bromley North Station. The walk should last around two hours and it’s free to join, but donations to the society are welcome.
Tony Banfield will lead the Bromley North heritage walk as it embarks on a route around the town centre. It will follow College Slip before going through the Bromley College grounds. This will be a fantastic chance for you to admire the college, which was built in the 17th century; a tour of the chapel will be included. The buildings are packed with history and the visit will transport you back to the Victorian era, when HG Wells was living in the town. After visiting the college, the walk will then go onto the High Street before going to Market Square and then proceeding up East Street.
