Our monthly lecture meetings take place in the larger of the two Crofton Halls, Crofton Road, Orpington BR6 8PR (a few yards up the hill from Orpington Station) on the second Monday of the month at 2.0p.m.  Although the main approach is via York Rise which is best for arriving by car, the picture on this page shows the footpath alongside the Crofton Roman Villa, the shortest approach for those arriving on foot from Orpington Station. There is ample car parking in the two car parks on the site.

Visitors are asked to make a voluntary donation of £8 for any single lecture.

Bus routes: 61, 208, 353, R2 R7.    Scroll down for a helpful Google map.

All Lectures begin promptly at 2.0pm. However our November meeting follows our AGM starting at 1.30pm, so for November our members are urged to arrive early, in time for the AGM.


Our Study Days are held at Ripley Arts Centre, 24 Sundridge Avenue, Bromley BR1 2PX, and start at 10.0am. There is limited car parking on site, but ample on-street parking nearby.

Tea and Coffee and biscuits are provided during a short break midway through the morning lecture, and we usually finish by 12.30pm. For more information on the venue for study days see 'Our Study Days' on the 'Special Interest' tab.

Both the Crofton Halls and the Ripley Arts Centre are wheelchair accessible.
