The name Chislehurst literally means ‘a stony place in the woods’. A somewhat appropriate name to keep in mind as Joanna Friel explores the secrets of Chislehurst. Evidence of Chislehurst’s rich heritage can be seen embedded throughout the streets of this district, highlighting that Chislehurst remains a special place of distinctive character. It is, indeed, no ordinary suburb.

Using vast knowledge of the area, Joanna Friel provides her readers with a brilliant look into the secrets of the area. From visually obvious fragments of the past that still exist to those lesser-known facts. For instance, did you know that an ingenious communication system erected on the town’s highest hill supposedly prevented an invasion by Napoleon Bonaparte, or that a local death sparked the ruin of a leader of the Irish Home Rule Movement? From locals looking for a nostalgic look back into their district to touring visitors, this book provides an excellent alternative view into the covert aspects of Chislehurst.
