Venture in to Southwark with us on Saturday 19 November for our next Architecture Ride, on the subject of War Memorials.
There are over 100,000 war memorials in the UK, about 3,500 of these are in London and over 300 are in Southwark alone.
In this remembrance month of November we will explore a very small selection of the lesser known memorials including, of course World Wars I and II but also visit those from other conflicts and which commemorate different groups of victims.
We’ll start and end our ride south of the river, with a foray into Westminster to sample some more ostentatious sites of remembrance.
Start is at 10am from the Southwark War Memorial (pictured) on Borough High St, just south of London Bridge. It is next to the Slug and Lettuce pub and almost opposite the historic George Inn. We’ll finish in the Waterloo area mid-late afternoon.
