Bromley Civic Society will be leading three of its popular heritage walks during September to celebrate open day
17th century Bromley and Sheppard’s Colleges
The 17th century Grade 1 listed, Wren inspired buildings form a quiet oasis in Bromley North. The walk will take us through the two quadrangles of the main College, into the Chapel (1862), around the grounds to see Sheppard’s College (1840) and some 200 year old graffiti.
Saturday 8 September
Outside the Railway Tavern opposite Bromley North station
Bromley Palace and Park
The 18th century Georgian home of the Bishops of Rochester was transformed in 1845 by Victorian entrepreneur Coles-Child. We will see the grand staircase, wood carved panels, an Adams fireplace and more; also historic landscape features in the adjoining park.
