Present was Len's colleague Stephen Humphrey who received a Special Commendation for his book Southwark in Archives.
Len Reilly said that Southwark's rich history resulted in the Local Studies Library receiving more enquiries than any other local history library apart from the City and Westminster.

Both books are on sale at Southwark Cathedral bookshop.
