WATERLOO BY MAPLIGHT - GUIDED WALK WITH KEN TITMUSS
Tuesday 26 July
6.30pm-8.30pm; 8; email kentitmuss@yahoo.co.uk to book
Evening walk with old maps led by Ken Titmuss. Look beyond

London that once upon a time had a platform for the dead.
Follow a trail of topographical street names, unremarkable
buildings with remarkable stories and call up the memory of
local worthies including Emma Cons, John Rennie and the
Roupell family scandal. In the last 60 years the riverside
wharves have been transformed into the capital's cultural
quarter, yet the other three quarters of this
quintessentially London neighbourhood has a tale or two to
tell.
