Blackheath

Established: 1853

It is appropriate that the home of the first of the great independent Rugby clubs should be in Blackheath in South East England. On the Roman road from Dover, part of the ancient borough of Greenwich and 8 miles from central London, Blackheath is steeped in the history of England. It is remarkable that no less than four separate clubs, each the first independent club, covering four different sports of Golf, Hockey, Athletics and Rugby, were all founded in or near Blackheath. All are still in existence, all are still unaffiliated.
