Starting at 10.30am outside the Railway Tavern opposite Bromley North Station, the walk will last about 90 minutes, and will involve walking through College Green into the grounds of Bromley College, where the 17th century buildings form a quiet oasis in Bromley North.

Walkers will then go through the two quadrangles of the main college, into the chapel, (1864) where there will be a brief talk about the college.

After this, the walk will continue to the grounds of Sheppard’s College (1840) and back to see some 200 year old graffiti on the wall of the main college.

Going through High Street to look at how the town grew in the late Victorian period, the walk will end in the Market Square.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
