TQ3379 : St Saviour's Dock

near to Bermondsey, Southwark, Great Britain

St Saviour's Dock
St Saviour's Dock
Originally the mouth of the River Neckinger, the dock was embanked by the monks of Bermondsey Abbey. During the 17th and 18th centuries the area became heavily populated and deteriorated into slums; part of Charles Dickensí novel, Oliver Twist was set here. During Victorian times, the older slums were cleared and replaced by warehouses and mills. Some of these survive, having been converted into expensive apartments, many with restaurants, bars, shops, etc. on the ground floor. The building on the left edge of the photograph is New Concordia Wharf. In 1968, it was used to film part of the film Oliver! It was one of the first grain mills to be converted, in 1986.
