The Society enjoyed a splendid Summer Party at the Brunel Museum and the Rotherhithe Shaft – originally dug to provide access to the construction of the under-river tunnel in the 1820s and now converted into a dramatic performance space. We enjoyed a barbecue in the garden and jazz inside the shaft. It was well attended and a very jolly time was had by all.
It made me think how lively the Society is today – a group of people passionate about London’s past as well as its future. The Museum itself, as well the area around it, illustrates the richness of our heritage, the sort of place that makes London such a fascinating city and that provides the raison d’être of the Society. A most enjoyable event and I would particularly like to thank Rowena Ellims and Clare Ruby for the hard work they put in to make it such a success.
