Bartholomew street houses are as old if not older than the ones in trinity street, and even if you live in the flats it still constitutes a residential street, and anywhere in london the same applies..

I walk through Trinity Church & Merrick Sq from Borough High Street end to Great Dover Street to & from work and have done for the last 4 years almost daily and that stretch is a haven I tell you ! It's gorgeous to cut through and see those lovely streets, enjoying looking at the square and the plants & hear the birds before I step out again onto the main roads either side. It's only a small stretch, and as you say I have friends on the Peabody Estate in Marshalsea Road who by their campaign petition to the Council recently managed to close Mint Street side street so all power to locals who get their act together for better living conditions I say !
