Saturday 21 January 2017 Meeting at 11am Rotherhithe Overground exit and finishing at 1pm
Seeds of Change invites you to experience the undercurrents of London’s South Docks’ and the radical history of Rotherhithe. From this peninsula parish, the Mayflower set sail for North America and Captain James Cook gathered his intrepid crews. The walk will navigate this rich maritime history, through the development of the Surrey Docks, exploring the social and economic fabric of the ancient borough; particularly focusing on the work of political pioneers such as the Salters.
Join Southwark Hidden Stories to relive this progressive hidden history, and witness how non-conformism radically transformed city life through creative environmental and public health reforms.
Rotherhithe’s visionary Seeds of Change that formed the foundations of universal health care, social housing and modern green cities.
The walk is approximately 2 and half miles long and we would ask participants to wear sensible walking footwear and to come prepared for weather conditions.
The walk is free, and accessible. £5 Donations Welcome
