St Pauls Avenue, Rotherhithe, London, SE16
Off Rotherhithe Street, about 150 yards west of Beatson Street and originally called Ram Alley. About 1850 a school was built at the end of the Alley and named Surrey Canal School later changing to St Pauls School. In 1850 St Pauls Chapel of Ease was built very close to the school. This was built so that the locals did not have to "undertake the dangerous journey to St Marys" (See Neston Street). The Chapel was renovated in 1892 when timber from HMS Temeraire was used to construct the altar and altar rails. The Chapel was demolished in 1955 but this was 'hushed up' as it should not have been demolished. The school was dempolished late 1970's and Peter Hills School built in its place - visible at the end of the Avenue in the image. Initial intake were pupils from St Marys School in Culling Road. White wall on the right was the site of the Dukes Head pub.
