Rotherhithe Heritage Series




Howland Great Wet Dock, 1695


My series of posts about Rotherhithe's past, starting from prehistory and working its way through to modern times (but currently stalled in the late 1800s, thanks to other commitments) has been dotted around throughout the blog.  I posted them as and when they have been completed.  That's not a lot of help for anyone wanting to read about Rotherhithe's heritage as a coherent narrative, so here they are in chronological order.

The plan was to write them until I get to the present day, and they were in desperately in need of a re-write, but I never got around to it.
