Three Heritage open day walks: September 2018

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

Meet 10:30am

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.

Sunday 9th September

Victorian Bromley (HG Wells)

A walk around the old town of Bromley to get a flavour of its Victorian heyday, when many buildings in the Arts and Crafts style were built and the young Herbert George Wells was experiencing life that would later shape his novels.
