Welcome to the Website of the Camberwell Society

The Camberwell Society was formed in 1970 and is the recognised amenity society for those living, working or interested in Camberwell. The Society’s objectives, as defined by our constitution, are: to stimulate public interest in Camberwell, to promote high standards of planning and architecture in Camberwell, and to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic or public interest in Camberwell.

We are a charity and raise money for local charities. In the past we have raised money for Cambridge House, the Camberwell Community Choir , the Hollington Youth Centre and the Camberwell Arts Festival   For 2015 we are supporting
the Secret Garden on the D’Eynsford Estate and and the Stanswood Garden Project.
