WalkingSquares: from Southwark Bridge

View from Southwark Bridge
Our time away last week was in London. It was a working visit for John, but uncertainty over travel caused by on-off rail strikes meant that some of his meetings were cancelled. On Wednesday, he was able to join me for a long wander in search of one of my historical heroes, Samuel Pepys. Here, we are crossing the Thames to the Anchor, a tavern on Bankside from which Pepys allegedly watched the Great Fire of London in 1666. I say allegedly, because we came across another location which made the same claim! I hope to write this whole walk up sometime: for now I’m linking to Becky’s Walking Squares.


  1. I love all your old and new quirky buildings. I think London has the most interesting skyline of all the big cities in the world. It was nice John could join you on your quest!


I'd love to hear what you think!
