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 from here.
There are three strands to the project: this website, the map/guide pamphlet and heritage plaques to be installed in and around the high street.
A Spacehive appeal raised enough money to fund the website and the pamphlet. Bromley Council pledged funding from the New Homes Bonus for the plaques. A Thank You list of sponsors and a list of Credits form end-notes.
There are free guided Heritage Walks during the Penge Festival or on Penge Days. Penge Heritage Walk 2 took place on Saturday June 8, 2019, as part of the Penge Festival, and the Walter de la Mare Walk took place on Saturday June 15. The next circular tour of Penge is on Penge Day, August 24. Details on What’s On. A News section is being prepared. Responses to the website so far: ‘Terrific’, ‘Brilliant, ‘Excellent’, ‘A useful asset to Penge’ and ‘I really like it!’ Meanwhile, enjoy your visit to the website and enjoy your follow-up walks around Penge!
