Fun History evening on the London Bridge area with Historian Paul

Paul Sinclair, 45+ Not Grumpy historian will be taking us around the London Bridge area of London

This walk takes in two battles on the bridge, a rebellion, spikes with heads, frost fairs, docks and wharves and the magnificent bridge itself allowing access to the city for over 600 years. Built in the 12th century by king Henry II as penance for the murder of Thomas Becket it lasted until its demolition in the 19th century. We'll look at its impact on the city and why despite the terrible traffic jams to get over the river, repeated attempts to build another were thwarted.
We ask that everyone is logged in to the virtual cafe by 18:35 for a prompt start.

As you all know, Paul is a fun, interesting and knowledgeable raconteur. He'll be presenting for around 40 minutes London, supported by illustrations and photographs.

At about 19.15, Paul will ask for questions and we will have time to chat with him before the session ends.


Please join as promptly as possible from about 6.25 so Paul can make a prompt start at 6.35. However, latecomers are still welcome
