THE BOROUGH GUIDED WALK WITH OLD MAPS - LED BY KEN TITMUSS
Sunday 4 September

Walk with old maps round an area of London that has for
centuries been a pont of arrival and departure, exemplified
by the last galleried inn in London. Through canopies of
elegant railway viaducts, the walk traces remnants of lost
London industries, finding a Victorian warehouse and the
secret life of a building that was in the 1870s a hat
factory. What was it before and what is it now? There are
examples of the improved housing that Octavia Hill was
responsible for. The spirit of Charles Dickens is never far
away; follow his journey from Lant Street to the Marshalsea
and with an old map see how the prison was laid out.
