Bromley Borough Local History Society


Links and Downloads

To make this site more useful for local historians and anyone else interested in finding out more about the history of the London Borough of Bromley, this page has been created and will be expanded over time to provide a resource of information. If you have any suggestions for additions, please let us know. Most of the documents are freely available on-line but have been grouped here for convenience.

Just click on an underlined title to find out more or to download the document (in searchable pdf format for which you will need Adobe Acorobat Reader which can be obtained free from here). Some of these files are stored on an external website - if it asks you to sign in, just ignore this and click on "carry on". You can then view on-line or download to your PC.

All this information is provided free of charge whether or not you are a Society member and we hope you will find it useful.

And if you do, why not join the Society and enjoy our quarterly magazine, lower meeting costs and joining our visits and tours?

You will also be helping us preserve local history at very moderate cost - click here for membership details.
