THE STORIES

 

The unravelling of the story of Blackheath is one of the most rewarding parts of the hours spent researching the past. As more and more stories are recalled or discovered the excitement grows as missing parts of our village history fit into place.

We currently have a wide selection of articles on most aspects of the village past and present. 

We have endeavoured to check our facts as much as possible but please do let us know if we have got anything wrong, our apologies for that but we are only human!

Please contact us if you are interested in any information or can provide any further stories, images or snippets of Blackheath's history.
