taken 10 years ago, near to Bermondsey, Southwark, Great Britain

Playground at Newington Butts
Playground at Newington Butts
A contemporary playground (c.2009) adjacent to the leisure centre (left).

Historical note: the playground occupies the site of the former St Gabriel Mission Church, built in 1874 within St Mary's churchyard to replace the old church which was about to be demolished for road widening. St Gabriel's was itself demolished in 1937. The site was sold for 4 to Southwark Council in 1939 and turned into a park - its value today if sold for development could easily be a million times that!
