I really didn't know where Deptford was until I booked this walk and I think I know London pretty well.....it's next to Greenwich! Having been on the Sean Patterson's Whitechapel Charles Booth Walk I knew it teach me a lot about the area. It is longer than the other walks at 3 hours but this time is filled with interesting tales of the East India Company, Russian Royalty and philanthropy.
We saw examples of new and very old properties in the area, the importance of it's transport links and the the way the River Thames played an important part in it's long history along with continuing references to the Poverty Maps of Charles Booth.
He told me while we were walking that part of the walk is going to be featured on Michael Portillo's Great Railway Journeys programme early next year!
A very enjoyable walk that also includes a visit to a very nice pub!
