COOLSE1 WALK  RGB

Seeds of Change invites you to experience the undercurrents of London’s South Docks and the radical history of Rotherhithe & Bermondsey – the peninsula parish, from which 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, discovering Rotherhithe’s and Bermondsey’s visionary Seeds of Change that formed the foundations of universal health care, social housing and modern green cities.
The free, guided public walk is approximately 3 miles long and we would ask participants to wear sensible walking footwear and to come prepared for the prevailing weather conditions.
Starts outside Rotherhithe Tube (Overground) at 11 am and finishes around 1pm.
