Walk with old maps round an area of London that has for centuries been a pont of arrival and departure, exemplified by the last galleried inn in London.
Through canopies of elegant railway viaducts, the walk traces remnants of lost London industries, finding a Victorian warehouse and the secret life of a building that was in the 1870s a hat factory. What was it before and what is it now?
There are examples of the improved housing that Octavia Hill was responsible for.
The spirit of Charles Dickens is never far away; follow his journey from Lant Street to the Marshalsea and with an old map see how the prison was laid out.
