Southwark (now full)

Saturday, 1 October 2016 - 9:30am

Leader: Peter Moore

Re-runs are often requested and this walk is from Dec 2009.

Intimately linked for 2000 years to the City of London by London Bridge, Southwark is, nevertheless, a place apart. A convenient place for the stink industries and dubious entertainments undesirable to but necessary for the City. Its history has been shaped by all traffic from the south into the City having to pass through it until 1750. It retains large parts of its Tudor street pattern, the only remaining galleried inn in London, Borough Market, formative associations with Dickens and much that is unexpected.

Meet at Letchworth station at 9.30 for the 9.56 train (9.52 Baldock, 10.00 Hitchin) to Kings Cross. Gather at the end of the arrival platform before the barriers. Return on trains before 4.30 on weekdays. Off-peak travelcards or equivalent.

£3 contribution for leader’s research expenses. Bookings from 30 August via Peter Moore, not Rosemary, preferably by email, or 01462 676166. Contact on the day 07795 691732
