A new book by Chislehurst resident, Patricia Waters
Built on the Bowling Green: the story of a corner of Chislehurst Common and the people who lived there.
Although focused on a small area encompassing The Crown, St Nicholas Primary School, five houses and Camden Close, the book’s scope is much wider. There are illuminating details about the community’s connections with the first female candidate for the US presidency, an 18th century prime minister, First Class cricketers and great shipping and banking dynasties.
Carefully researched and richly illustrated.
