Just had an email from Martin Spence, whose book on Penge history I highly recommend. He now has a blog, Penge Past

Martin Spence Wrote:
A few years ago I wrote a book about the history of Penge in south-east London.

It set out to do three things: to celebrate the quirky Victorian railway suburb where I happen to live; to reveal some of the historical processes that created the townscape of Penge as it is today; and to show how these processes only make sense as part of the development of London, the first great capitalist world-city.

This blog continues in that vein: starting from – but not limited to – Penge, it will poke about beneath the suburban familiarity of South London, root up historical stuff that takes my fancy, and maybe even have the odd bit of fun.

Here's the link
