BERMONDSEY WALK WITH OLD MAPS
Sunday 2 October
2pm; 8; email kentitmuss@yahoo.co.uk to book
Join Ken Titmuss for a walk with old maps round the one time
leather-making district, that is also one of the oldest
neighbourhoods in London. Explore a landscape of old
industrial buildings, even older houses and pockets of open
space with stories to tell. You will be reminded of all the
associated trades to the making of leather; the woolstaplers
and fellmongers amongst them. This was an area of extreme
poverty and we find remnants of how this was relieved. There
are amongst many unsung heroes, two people who made a
lasting impression not just on Bermondsey but in how London
developed. Learn about Alfred and Ada Salter. Can you
imagine a council setting up a beautification commitee? The
settlement grew around an ancient religious foundation that
in 1399 became Bermondsey Abbey. This has long gone but this
walk traces where it was and see how it still influences the
topography.
