Does anyone know of the site for a grave yard in use in 1795 in the area now known as Elephant and Castle.

The Elephant and Castle, immediately south of the Metropolitan Tabernacle, is the site of the old St. Mary Newington church with its burial ground. There is a list of rectors going back to 1212. The church was pulled down in 1876 but the graveyard remained until at least the 1950's. The present church of St. Mary Newington in Kennington Park Road is on a new site, further south and on the other side of the road.

I understand that street traders are to be removed from the south bank in lambeth, and possibly southwark. While I don't like vans giving out lots of fumes, I think that some street trading is a vital asset to a stroll on the south bank. There's one icecream trader who sells cornets from a bycile trailer not from a van with fumes, usually near blackfriars bridge. Some London parks have bycicle icecream sellers too. Why don't we encourage 'clean' vendors to trade on south bank, I always need an icecream on my walk in the summer, and I don't mind hot dobgs either. It brings some more life and variety to the place. What we all don't want is noisy polluting vans. Give me something to cheer me up, however, and I'll come more often. Lets make a positive virtue out of the history of the south bank on alternative, informal trade and encourage the environment to boot.
