Life and death – living healthily, dying and disposal

Both the provision and education associated with Guy’s Hospital and Kings College has a huge legacy in the area as well as being a significant landmark. Local place-shaping is also improving public health, with the provision of accessible and attractive public realm (footways, paths, riverside access, gardens and parks) all significant ‘health assets’.

The area however, has also had a long history of burial, not just human but also animal carcasses, and many areas previously set aside for burial are now providing opportunities for leisure activities and green space.

What strange spirits might one encounter in the haunts of the London Bridge area?

Join the Museum of Walking in one of a series of walks entitled Letters and Postcards from London Bridge, where we will discover an area steeped in history and undergoing rapid change. Sharing knowledge as we walk, we will invite you to write a letter or a post card from London Bridge. Highlights of participant’s experiences will be pulled together into a limited-edition Chapbook.

Letters and Postcards from London Bridge is commissioned by Team London Bridge.
