Welcome to the Penge Heritage Trail
We hope you discover a great deal more about Penge SE20 than perhaps you possibly knew, especially if you live here, and that you enjoy following the trail.
You may follow the trail digitally as on this website, but you may also want to get a copy of the illustrated map/guide and follow aspects of it in Penge itself and in your own time.
Be advised that the map/guide pamphlet is a simplified version of what is on the website and is available from Penge Library and other high street outlets or downloadable below.
There are three strands: this website, the map/guide pamphlet and the heritage plaques installed in and around the high street.
There are free guided Heritage Walks during the Penge Festival, Pengefest or on Penge Days. Walks take place usually in June, August and December. All guided walks are suspended for the meantime owing to Covid 19 concerns.
Responses to the website: ‘The Penge Heritage Trail is a magnificent project’; ‘Brilliant’; ‘A useful asset to Penge’ and ‘I really like it!’ ‘Splendid’ (Dr Steven Parissien, Oxford University).
Painting of the Month is by Penge artist Andrea Blair. Enjoy your visit and your follow-up walks around Penge!
As a voluntarily-managed website, donations towards the cost of its maintenance in these difficult times are very welcome.
