The Brockley Society was formed in 1974 to protect the charming yellow London brick character of its Victorian terraced houses. In 2011, the society decided to appoint wardens to consider the tree stock that is just as vital in giving the area its special appeal.
The Chandos Foundation was involved from the beginning and has pushed for the society to work towards specific goals:

John Thompson (Head of Green Scene, Environmental Services) & Rick Farr
