Post by Leslie Butler: Neate Street, SE5

My Uncle (James Burgess and his wife Lil) used to live on Neate street, we used to come up from Croydon to visit (50 years ago) and play on the canal bridge that was about six houses along, the canal used to be at the back of his house. Used to feel like we were in a Dickens film Oliver Twist. The bridge is still there but nothing underneath as the canal has long gone and so have the houses that used to be on Neate street.

Walworth

Walworth is an inner-city district in the London Borough of Southwark. Walworth probably derives its name from the Old English Wealhworth, meaning 'farm'. It is located 2 miles south east of Charing Cross and near to Camberwell and Elephant and Castle.

The major streets in Walworth are the Old Kent Road and Walworth Road. It once had a common surrounded by streets with houses on one side, the Common on the other. This whole area is now covered by housing.

St. Peter's Church, Walworth's altar
St. Peter's Church, Walworth, built circa 1825, is an excellent example of the neo-classical style of church built by Sir John Soane. It is an indication of the wealth of the middle-class merchants who then lived in the vicinity that they could afford an architect of such prominence. Charles Upfold was born at Walworth Common and baptised at St. Peters. The church is home to the Monkey Park - which was once home to a menagerie kept by a past Reverend of the Church, but is now a garden.

Walworth is also home to the Pullens buildings - a mixture of Victorian live/work spaces and yards. Many of the flats are 1 bedroom, and some of the flats still connect to the Workshops of any of the three yards (Illife Yard, Peacock Yard and one other). They all share communal roof terraces with extensive views over to the West End.
Walworth also used to have a Zoo, in Royal Surrey Gardens, which was visited by Queen Victoria.

East Street market is a major street market.
