Looking at the map on the publisher's site, it looks like the sequel will include more of SE1, including a longer stretch of TBR, Long Lane and Bermondsey Street.

A fictional street runs between Long Lane and Bermondsey Street, accomodating the also fictional "Borough Metalworks", with the screenshots showing an interior reminiscent of the industrial conversions a la Jam Factory. The location makes it roughly around Leatherworks.

It's a computer game - set in London - think Lock, Stock / Snatch with you as one of the protagonists. Has a very realistic road map, so if you live centrally, you can drive down your own street !

Can't find a screenshot that is ok to show here (for copyright, not graphic content reasons) but you can look here if you are interested.

But wasn't there a metalworks in Borough?

Otherwise why do all the drainhole covers say Borough on them?

...if you press it, they will come.

I guess I was meaning fictional in terms of being a residential development with that name.

I have a feeling that the man hole covers were made in a metal works in Union street, though I might be wrong
