The Old Rectory, Carshalton

Thursday 26 March 19:30

A Friends of Honeywood Museum Event

An illustrated talk by Sue Horne, author of ‘A Respectable Parsonage House’, a history of this Grade II* listed building.

Surprisingly, the house only functioned as a rectory for less than a third of its life. The occupants were not, as might be expected, all clergymen. Instead, they were a rich mixture of different people who either owned, lived in, or worked in the Old Rectory over the past 300 years.

London at War

Thursday 23 April 19:30

A Friends of Honeywood Museum Event

An illustrated talk by Ian Bevan, City of London Guide

The experience of the First World War prepared London for the next. Schemes worked out in the 1930s led to detailed plans for the air defence of London – air raid shelters; civil defence training; evacuation of the city. However, the events of the years 1939 to 1945 were far more severe than anyone could have predicted. During the intense bombing campaign from September 1940 to May 1941 the destruction and loss of life were unimaginable. Bombing continued throughout the war years especially in 1944 when V1s and V2s ravaged parts of South London in particular. However, Londoners learned to cope and even find humour in the ruins of their City.
