Our geographical area of interest is the southern region of the London Borough of Bexley in north west Kent, comprising Sidcup, Blackfen, Foots Cray and North Cray. Our interest in local history extends beyond the boundaries of Sidcup into Kent, London and the surrounding areas. This is reflected in the variety of our meetings.
We are pleased to welcome back members, prospective new members and visitors to our monthly meetings from September 2021.
We are very sad to learn of the death of our MP James Brokenshire. He had always been so supportive of Lamorbey and Sidcup Local History Society projects.
Our 'Famous People of Sidcup' banners can be seen in the High Street and Station Road areas. Accompanying leaflets will be available from Sidcup Library when it re-opens. You can also download a copy of the two leaflets.
Work has begun to build a new library in Sidcup High Street. The old Blockbuster building on the corner of Elm Road, which has been empty for many years, has been demolished. Lamorbey & Sidcup Local History Society was asked to select local history photographs to show on the hoardings which have been erected around the site. Take a look when you are next passing by!
