St George's Circus by Maplight Evening Walk


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Join Ken Titmuss for an evening walk with old maps exploring the streets around St George's Circus, covering what had been St George's Fields, about 150 acres of un-enclosed marshy strip fields that had also been used as common land.

St George's Circus was a pivot for the new roads built to connect Westminster Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge with the already built up part of Southwark.

As late as 1750 all that stood on St George's Fields were a windmill and the Dog and Duck Inn and pleasure gardens. It was all about to change.
