SOS; SAVE OUR SOUTHWARK

Ah, there’s a worthy fight. Thames Water are holding ‘open’ consultations about the new tunnel to emerge in Southwark, a massive disruption, and locals are understandably up in arms, supported by the likes of actor and Starship Enterprise captain Patrick Stuart. In many ways Southwark is already under enormous pressure with the building of the Shard, and the attack on a memorable Pugin building too, but we must pause to realise the extraordinary history of that whole district. Locals and actors banded together to save the stones of the Rose theatre in the 1980’s and maybe it is time to realise what we have around us in London, but it is the tip of the iceberg.
