What we do
The Red House
Bexley Historical Society in Kent UK meets monthly at The Huxtable Hall, St Martin's Church, Erith Road, Barnehurst, Kent DA7 6LE (near to Bexleyheath Bus Garage) at 7.45 pm for 8pm start.
Bexley Historical Society was established by history-loving citizens, as part of our Constitution states, "as a non profit organization to encourage an interest in both local, general historical and archaeological matters particularly those relating to the area within the boundaries of the Borough of Bexley".
The topics of our talks vary from places of local interest, such as Hall Place, Crossness and the Red House, to national treasures like the People's Palace in Glasgow and the History of British Broadcasting. There is a strong bias towards the South East obviously, and we have heard about the lives of local celebrities Charles Darwin and Charles Dickens as well as lesser known people like Thomas Dinwiddy, a local architect.
Please see our talks for future subjects. With parking and disabled access, as well as excellent tea/coffee and biscuits, a very warm welcome awaits all our visitors, who we hope soon become friends.
In addition to our talks, we have ongoing projects in which members and visitors can become involved.
