Forest Hill Society - Walk Through History

Come join the Forest Hill Society at 2pm on Saturday, February 1st for a history walk. This will be a gentle two-hour circular walk starting and ending at St. George Church.

We’ll read the topography of the edge of Perry Hill and its hidden histories. We will investigate the theory that a Roman Road briefly enters SE23 at Blythe Vale. Walking on the flat we shall locate Sidnum Place, the origin of the name Sydenham. And we will tell the amazing story of how Sidnum Place is also the origin story behind the Oak of Honor! And finally, we will find the old vinery beside the river Pool and a wetland landscape.

And if that isn’t enough, you’ll meet other members of the Forest Hill Society and people we share our community with. You do not have to be a member to join this tour, but at £5 per year why not become part of the Society at the same time.

Start and end points are close to the bus routes of the 75 and 202 and a short walk from the 185 and 171 bus stop for the Blythe Hill Tavern.

A great day for a walk.

Didn’t have time today but saw quite a good crowd near the St George’s. I hope it was fun. Will try to get to the next one.
