Join Ken Titmuss for a walk with old maps exploring the neighbourhood with more topographical street names than usual, reflecting its marshy past.
Along the way you will encounter the legacy of a Georgian scrap dealer, a theatre whose temperance past gave us a popular adult education institution and follow a lost river to where it joins the Thames.
Then there is the stop start story of London’s favourite bridge and the railway station that just kept expanding. As befits a locale where journeys begin and continue, the walk ends at the Four Corners Cafe, a place for nourishment and sharing stories.
