Event Details

£25

This walk, led by Stephen Bull, will take in former pastures green owned by the Church and the Crown, and which were once mainly marsh land used mostly for grazing sheep while the better higher ground at Kennington was built upon as the ideal location for the Georgian expansion of London. Stephen will take the tour group to Lower Marsh where William Blake (1757-1827) moved to observe the night’s sky, and it is here that he wrote ‘Jerusalem’ with its pastures green and the dark satanic mill that was the burnt-out shell of the Albion Steam mill (1786-1791) on Blackfriars Road.

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:

2 March: Vauxhall to Kennington

13 April: Kennington to Lambeth North

8 June: Waterloo to Southwark
