A monthly blog on the history of Blackheath and Greenwich.


Our area is rich, layered, and full of tales, twists, and turns. Its histories are often intertwined and difficult to separate, yet at the same time, each area has had its own unique experience over the centuries.


The Blackheath & Greenwich History Blog aims to peel back time and hunt for all the exciting details amongst the more commonly known facts.


Our aim is to deliver the area's history in small snapshots that can be read on the move. We want to share the love we have for Blackheath and Greenwich and give everyone its history at a glance. We research every fact we write and trawl through the sources, then break everything down and scribble about it here – hopefully in a way that is fun and entertaining.


Please feel free to rummage around, and if you find something you can contribute more to or have a question, we would love to hear from you.


The site will forever be a work in progress, so keep checking back for new updates or subscribe below to receive new blogs in your inbox (we promise not to spam you with anything other than historical facts).
