Bermondsey is an area in modern London on the southern bank of the river Thames, and presently part of the London Borough of Southwark. Bermondsey comprises the postal districts SE1 and SE16. To the west lies Southwark, to the east Rotherhithe, and to the south, Walworth. Allen and Young Ltd carry out all moving services including removals, man and van, storage, packing and house clearance in the Bermondsey area.
The first ‘Bermondsey’ is that known as the location of an Anglo-Saxon monastery, and known from later charters to be the area around the post-Conquest Bermondsey Abbey and its manor, which was in turn part of the medieval parish. References in the Parliamentary Rolls describe it as “in Southwark”. A later, Victorian civil parish of Bermondsey did not include Rotherhithe or St Olave’s; this was the arrangement under the Metropolis Management Act of 1855. The Southwark parishes of St Olave’s and St John’s Horsleydown (the latter a ‘daughter’ of the former) with St Thomas’s formed a parish union (‘District Board of Works’) known as ‘St Olave’s’ from that date. This was the arrangement within the London County from 1889. In 1899 St Olave and St Thomas’s District was created as a single civil parish and the next year, following London government reorganisation, this was merged with Rotherhithe and part of Deptford to form, with Bermondsey civil parish, the Metropolitan Borough of Bermondsey. This borough disappeared into the London Borough of Southwark, in the Greater London reorganisation of 1964.
Parts of Southwark (between London Bridge and Tower Bridge, most notably Hays Galleria), Tooley Street and Camberwell (Old Kent Road) are often mistakenly assigned to Bermondsey. The present council has divided the borough into ‘Community Council’ areas and has promoted signage for identity. These are based for convenience on the current wards, and therefore ‘Borough and Bankside’ (old Southwark) intrudes into Bermondsey Street, the oldest part of Bermondsey. The Community Council named ‘Bermondsey’ comprises the wards of Riverside (effectively Rotherhithe), Grange, and South Bermondsey (areas south of Lower Road). My best friend Neil Fell lives in Bermondsey, but he is looking to move.
Despite the presence of London Bridge station, Bermondsey’s transport links with the rest of London have historically been poor. This was remedied in 1999 with the opening of Bermondsey tube station on the London Underground’s Jubilee Line Extension. Read more…
