Welcome to the website of Lamorbey and Sidcup Local History Society


All meetings are held at St Lawrence's Community Hall, Sidcup on the first Tuesday of each month.


Famous People of Sidcup

Our new project to encourage interest in Sidcup's history and to have a positive effect on the town's street scene.

Sidcup's Great War: A Living Pageant

See pictures of our community event to commemorate the First World War and our project to investigate Sidcup's Home Front.

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 members, prospective new members and visitors to our monthly meetings

2022 is the year of the Society's 70th anniversary. At Sidcup Library from May 2022 is a display of the society's projects, past, present and future. 


Our 'Famous People of Sidcup' banners can be seen in the High Street and Station Road areas. Accompanying leaflets are available from Sidcup Library. 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!
