The Walkers Guide to the Heath

Neil Rhind (author of many books about Blackheath) writes:

I am hoping that the Blackheath Buglers can help the Blackheath Society on a small point of location. The Society is moving close (November) to the publication of a Walkers’ Guide to the Heath – three long walks, all plotted out drawing the ramblers attention to features, facts and history. There is also a timeline from the Romans to the present day. This is all being compiled by the undersigned and Dr Roger Marshall, a member of the Blackheath Society committee. as part of the Digital scheme to make the Society’s collection of about 15,000 images available on a web site with full public access.

One feature noted is a concrete “horse trough” at the south end of Montpelier Row. No animals drink there but it is used for floral displays. We believe that it was once elsewhere in the Village. Can anyone tell us where?

Free copy of the Blackheath walkers’ guide to the first person to get it right.

Their email address is:

    The concrete horse trough came from Downham. Was placed by Lewisham on Royal Parade and then moved to Montpelier Row. This was established from correspondence in the Blackheath Society archives so nobody won the prize.
