Nui­sance’ was the legend ci­ety took a London trip

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PEOPLE IN PICTURES -

The Welsh Bor­ough Chapel has just been ren­o­vated. One of its founders was ‘Gin Shop Jones’ – an old sign on its rear wall reads ’Com­mit No Nui­sance’.

From near the Globe the­atre the dra­matic view across the Thames in­cluded the re­cent ’Gherkin’, ‘Walkie Talkie’, and ’Cheese Grater’ build­ings, all of which were out­shone by glo­ri­ous St Paul’s.

Near the river­side An­chor pub was the site of the An­chor brew­ery which, in the 18th cen­tury, had the great­est out­put in the world. The wife of its owner, MP Henry Thrale, was Hester Sal­is­bury, a so­cialite from a wealthy Caernar­von­shire fam­ily.

Lit­tle re­mains of Winch­ester Palace from which the Bishop once is­sued per­mits for pros­ti­tu­tion in the area (th­ese poor girls were known as Winch­ester geese).

We con­cluded our walk at South­wark Cathe­dral and thanked Caro­line for plan­ning a walk with such a va­ri­ety of places of in­ter­est to show us.
