Bexley Historical Society in Kent, UK was established in December 1951. We are a friendly society, meeting monthly at the hall of St John Fisher RC Church, 48, Thanet Road, Bexley DA5 1AP.
We listen to speakers talking about local, general historical and archaeological subjects about the Bexley Borough and its surrounding areas. Please see our forthcoming talks.
We are the oldest local history society in the borough and we aim to foster an interest in all matters of historical significance relating to the Bexley district. Through our Then & Now project we are creating a photographic record of the whole borough, and our regular Newsletter keeps members informed of our activities. Our project, Changing Times: 100 Years of the Broadway, Bexleyheath, 1912-2012, was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Membership of the Bexley Historical Society costs just £18 per year January to December. It includes free entry to our monthly talks, a regular newsletter and the opportunity to take part in our projects. To join, please come along to one of our meetings.
