Traces of Pimlico’s Past - A One-hour Lecture on 18 October 2017

Bounded on three sides by rivers, this district of London has changed its name, its character and its location over ten centuries. A careful study of Pimlico's topography reveals medieval market gardening and an abbot's holiday home, Georgian docks and distilleries, a canal with no boats, Florence Nightingale's industrial uncle, and social changes brought about by wars and a railway station.      

A one-hour lecture on Wednesday, 18 October (2pm) with Rob Kayne, cost £8.00/£6.40 SoG members. Places should be pre-booked, through our website or by telephone during open huors: 020 7553 3290. Do you have a question? email the events department.
