Event Details


Stephen Bull will discuss the ambitions of the Georgian Builders to create a network of streets and squares with the development of Walcot Square (1830) and West Square (1791) with a new ‘state of the art’ semaphore telegraph station constructed in 1810 to form part of a communication network stretching from the Admiralty to Chatham and Sheerness. The tour will also take in the site of Bethlem Royal Hospital (1815) which was also known as Bedlam and is now the home of the Imperial War Museum.

Part of a series of four walks from Vauxhall to Southwark. London’s South Bank has always been London’s pleasure ground and Stephen Bull, a long-time resident of the area and a repairer of Georgian buildings, will be looking at the Georgian development of the South Bank from Vauxhall to Southwark in a series of walks to enlighten, educate and amuse. The other walks in the series are:
