To be notified as new recordings are released, please subscribe using the button below.

With over 4,000 members, The Chislehurst Society is one of the largest civic societies in the UK and is active in preserving and recording the heritage of the local area. Joanna Friel has been the Chairman of the society since 2018 and her absolute passion for the local area and its heritage is apparent in what is a lively, fascinating and extremely enjoyable insight into the local area and its history.

Joanna tells us about some of the famous people from Chislehurst's past, and about many of the gems in the society's collection which she very modestly refers to as 'a cupboard of slightly disorganised ephemera', although it should be noted that the cupboard itself is also a part of Chislehurst's heritage!

Additionally, Joanna talks about the importance of storytelling in preserving local heritage, of engaging with young people and why items found in skips and indeed inside quilts in Victorian attics should never be discarded without thorough examination...
