Vickers Road
The road ’Vickers Road’ is numbered rather differently to other roads in the area as it was originally built as housing for the "Vickers" arms factory in the late 1800’s and early 1900s. Most of the houses still retain the original 19th century tiling and drainage outside of the front doors.

The Swan Road Mosaic is 3.35 metres by 9.60 metres and was made from vitreous glass by the artist David John in 1992. The mural is one of a number of environmental art projects in which the artist was involved. The work consists of around 350,000 pieces of Italian vitreous glass specially designed for mosaics. The background shows the skyline along Rotherhithe’s riverfront, as seen from Wapping on the opposite shore. The buildings include 19th century dock warehouses, cranes and industrial chimney stacks. The scene is dominated by the clock tower of St Mary’s church. It is from this ancient waterfront that the Mayflower is said to have started its voyage which took the Pilgrim Fathers from Plymouth to New England.

The Fighting Temeraire (1838) This is a renowned oil painting created by the English artist J.M.W. Turner, born on 23 April 1775. The painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1839 and is currently housed in the National Gallery in London. The painting depicts the HMS Temeraire, a famous 98-gun ship that played a significant role in the Battle of Trafalgar, being towed by a steam tug along the Thames in 1838. The ship was being taken to Rotherhithe in order to be dismantled and sold as scrap. Turner seems to have painted his famous painting - The Fighting Temeraire - from the balcony at the Angel Inn, situated at 101 Bermondsey Wall East.
