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 20 May 2022 is a display of the society's projects, past, present and future.
To mark our 70th anniversary we have some commemorative items, including a poster and tea towel featuring Sidcup Place, and a set of five postcards of Sidcup in the 1950s. These will be on sale in the library on 27 May and 4 June 10am-2pm.
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!
