Rotherhithe Ramble

Another day, another urban walk.

This time a local one, around Rotherhithe and the Surrey Docks (or Surrey Quays as its now known)

Most of the route following the Thames Path, and has a lot of historical interest in the area, from the place where the Mayflower first set sail from to the first tunnel known to have been constructed successfully underneath a navigable river.

Although this side of the docks has been re-developed, it is mainly with housing and not the towering buildings of Canary Wharf and this helps to show how big the docks really were.
