BERMONDSEY WALK WITH OLD MAPS
Tuesday 8 November
2.30pm; £8; email kentitmuss@yahoo.co.uk to book
Walk with old maps round the former 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.
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 demonstrates how it still
influences the topography.

Talk by Paul Cowdell. 23 November is St Clement's day. The

merged with similar celebrations two days later for St
Catherine, the patron saint of rope makers. This talk will
look at the saints and their celebrations, taking in along
the way Dickens, doles, the docks and dynamite.
