Heritage Lottery Project update 7 - Talk at Christ Church

Joanna Friel continues to accompany the restored map of Camden Place on its tour of Chislehurst, and on 4 December, she gave a talk to a 100-strong audience at The Link, Christ Church, Lubbock Road. Many of the audience were from Lubbock Road, which is a significant feature on the map.

Talk at Christ Church

Part of the audience at The Link, 4 December

Joanna Friel providied colourful commentary on historian, William Camden, the lives of Charles Pratt, Thomson Bonar and Nathaniel Strode. The map was proudly on show and lots of questions asked. It was a great community evening with many neighbours meeting for the first time. The Christchurch Link building (which The Society previously granted some monies towards) truly lived up to its name and the Heritage Lottery map gained many more admirers.
