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.


The Echo Project

Keep an eye on 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 very excited to be part of this year’s Bexley Book Buzz Literary Festival. On 25 February we will be giving an illustrated talk on the story of the Queen's Hospital in Sidcup and its pioneering work in facial reconstruction during World War One.‬ Tickets can be booked at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/bexley-libraries-7939598856

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 leaflet. Bookmarks based on the banners are also available from Sidcup Library.
