Does anybody here knows whether the antique market will open on next Friday ( Good Friday,13th of April) since I am living in Reading, Berks, and don't want to waste my time to get there if it's not open that day. Thanks for your help. Sheng paul@happylife.co.uk

I Have been surfing the net today and was pleased to see the page on SE1, as I was born in 42a Snowsfields some 64 years ago,
we had friends who used to have a stall in Towerbridge Road, their name was Archer they usually were outside the pie and mash shop. Is this where the Bermondsey markets are? Can anyone tell me if Credon Road School is still going?

Yes, there's bits & pieces of market stalls at that point... but the old Trocette Cinema just across the road has been turned into flats.
The Bermondsey Market everyone comes to see is actually antiques, transferred from the other side of the Thames some time ago. Lively, but like antiques markets worldwide, caveat emptor.

Haven't heard of Credon Rd School, tho' one still appears on the AtoZ map.

Thanks Jim

Credon Road School was off Ilderton Road, off Rotherhithe New Road. It was a Secondary Modern as they called them then.

The Junior School I went to was Gallywall Road.

As I said I was born in Snowsfields, then evacuated to Wales in 1941, returning to live in Southwark Park Road in 1945.

Although it is great to be in Australia I still have a very warm for place of my childhood and youth.

Thanks once Again

Hi, I am an Architecture student working on an Urban Studies dissertation on Bankside's redevelopment since 1945. I was wondering whether you could, please, give any information on the history, and political affects, of the site from 1945 until today. Thank you very much Anna
