I must be having a blonde moment today, as I'm still not quite sure what it is you are trying to do - and so am having difficulty (as others) in answering your question.
Who are you trying to tell the story too ?
Are you a) producing a bit of blurb for your company's website explaining why you are moving to Borough;
b) getting some background information for your own personal interest about what kind of place you are moving too; or
c) [and here Lang
Rabbie's cynicism must be catching] find a subtle way of producing a targeted marketing list ?
If it's a) a 2 second Google could give you all the information you might ever need (for example - this from Southwark BC's website)
Bermondsey was once the heart of London's food processing area, close to the docks of Pool of London. Many household names in the food industry had factories in Bermondsey - Peak Frean's biscuits, Sarson's Vinegar and Courage Breweries - earning the area its name and reputation as the ‘Larder of London'. The old industries have gradually declined leaving a legacy of fine old warehouses and industrial spaces, now home to restaurants, galleries and studios.
Also Google "larder of London" for loads of stuff about Hays Galleria (80% of London's foodstuffs passed through it in Victorian times apparently).
b) have a look at the Exploring section on the left of the page;
c) this is a community website, not a market research website.
Sorry if we seem a bit suspicious and / or unfriendly, but there's an increasing amount of spamming going on this forum and you are being a bit mysterious...
