Access & Facilities

Access

The path from the lych gate opposite the NatWest Bank in Bromley Road is level with the street and the interior of the church and no steps and gives the best access to the church.

Anyone accessing the church through the churchyard from St George’s Road and Beckenham Green should be aware that The Arts at St George’s does not recommend this particularly for the elderly, the infirm and the disabled (especially those using walking aids and frames or using wheelchairs and mobility scooters) whether accompanied or not.

The Churchyard and Possible Hazards

Large parts of the paths comprise old gravestones which can be extremely slippery and treacherous.

Off these paths the ground is uneven and numerous trip hazards exist, for example, low fencing and graves particularly if access is made from Beckenham Green.

People accessing and leaving the church via the churchyard do so at their own risk and should take care, particularly at night.

Bromley Council is responsible for the maintenance of the churchyard, its trees and paths.

The Parochial Church Council (PCC) accepts no responsibility or liability for loss of or damage to property or injury or accident to those walking through or using the churchyard.

Interior of the Building

The areas open to the public for concerts and other events are step free. However, the pews sit on low plinths raised above floor level, as a result all those entering and leaving the pews need to exercise due care.
