Lecture by Stephen Humphrey: "Maritime Bermondsey and Rotherhithe"
The excellent Thames Discovery Programme has organized a lecture by Stephen Humphrey called Maritime Bermondsey and Rotherhithe.
Stephen Humphrey is an expert on the Bermondsey and Rotherhithe area and if I wasn't busy that night I would have been there, notebook in hand and pen at the ready. The lecture is to be held at at Mortimer Wheeler House in north London on Thursday 8th August, between 6.30 and 7.30pm.
Be warned that it is not in a particularly convenient venue for Rotherhithe or Bermondsey residents, unless you happen to go to work in that direction. If you want to go and are planning to use public transport, the nearest tube stations are Old Street and Angel, both of which are a 15 minute walk away from Mortimer Wheeler House, but it is probably best to take a bus from the station because, if memory serves, neither station is in a particularly salubrious area, particularly at night. Directions, including bus routes and parking information, are on the Thames Discovery Programme website:
