Walking in Southwark

Following directions from the book Walking Dickens London, I started my walk at the Monument making my way down Fish Street Hill to the church at the bottom on Lower Thames Street, near London Bridge, called St Magnus the Martyr

Dickens mentions this church along with St Saviours Church (now Southwark Cathedral) as being the warders of the bridge ‘ visible in the gloom’.

Along Borough High Street is a park, Little Dorrit park, opposite the Church of St George the Martyr, where Little Dorrit was christened. The church is opposite a small park which was partly the site of the infamous Marshalsea Prison.
