I am a resident of Southwark Street
and the Peabody Estate just off of Southwark Street
I have recently found out some interesting facts about the property. Mainly, that all the blocks have a long basement which runs from one end of the blocks to the other end.
A friend of mine who also lives on the estate has told me about some of the contents down in the dark depths of these basement. She has found an old tin bath used during the war, and most importantly, large spiders that are rather unusual in colour and design suggest the lenght of time they have remained within the walls of these basement.
I would like to find out the history of these building, the basements, how old are they, and were the basements ever used.
If there is anyone out there who may be able to help, I would be most greatful!
