  • Secret Southwark and Blackfriars

    Kristina Bedford

    Product Code: BUJCL
    Paperback
    Intimately linked as twin hubs of the Elizabethan entertainment industry north and south of the Thames, Blackfriars' and Southwark's shared history emerged from opposing forces and ancient geographic personalities. First settled by the Romans, and surviving numerous invasions and conflagrations, the `Town of Southwark' enjoyed independent self-government until granted to the City of London by King Edward III in 1327, to empower the extradition of felons taking sanctuary south of the river, while Bankside fell under the less restrictive jurisdiction of the Bishop of Winchester, making it a magnet for pleasure seekers. By contrast, the piecemeal selling and leasing of medieval Blackfriars Priory following the Dissolution of the Monasteries led to one wing's transformation into an indoor theatre opposite the open-air Globe, with both closed in 1642 at the outbreak of Civil War. In Secret Southwark and Blackfriars author Kristina Bedford explores pleasure, politics and much more, rediscovering a past that bubbles under the present-day cityscape.

  • Woolwich Through Time

    Kristina Bedford

    Product Code: AIXWL
    Paperback
    Woolwich is unique for its succession of iconic identities, which no longer exist, yet have not been lost to living memory - Woolwich Dockyard, founded by King Henry VIII in 1512 and closed in 1869, Woolwich Arsenal and its Laboratory Square, built in 1696 and roofed over in 1854 to provide the heart of the expanding munitions factory, which closed in 1967, and Woolwich Arsenal FC, formed by munitions workers in 1886 and moved from Manor Ground to Highbury in 1913. Most recently, in July 2007, the last Regiment of the Royal Artillery, formed by Royal Warrant in 1716 and occupiers of the barracks next to Woolwich Common since the mid-1770s, left for its new base at Larkhill on Salisbury Plain. Development of the site is ongoing, with other troops transferred to take the Gunners' place. Regeneration of the town centre and waterfront likewise continues today.
