Stephen Humphrey has passed away

I was terribly sorry to hear about the death of Stephen Humphrey at the age of 64 on 1st December 2016.  A Southwark historian who worked from primary sources, published a number of books and booklets on the subject, was president of the Rotherhithe & Bermondsey Local History Society and was still lecturing regularly about the history of Rotherhithe and Bermondsey, he was awarded with the Freedom of the Borough in 2012 and he will be very much missed.

Short obituaries have been published on the Southwark News, London News Online and London SE1 websites.

South Dock website

I have assembled all the posts about South Dock from this blog and posted them on a website of their own.  South Dock is now London's largest marina but used to be a part of the Surrey Commercial Docks, which closed in 1970.  It can be found at:
