Top South East London blog Transpontine has posted a fascinating (and topical) history of the tensions surrounding the creation of Kidbrooke school, London's first ever comprehensive.
-Update- Cllr Mary Mills has just added her own take on this story:
I'm looking to post more on Kidbrooke's history in the coming weeks.
Stories I'm interested in include:
- The history and route of the Kid Brooks.
- Rochester Way and the building of modern Kidbrooke.
- Kidbrooke Green and the Nature Reserve.
- The RAF base and balloon barrage.
So if anybody has an interesting angle on these or any other part of our history that they'd like to contribute to the Kite, then please do get in touch.
