Deptford Skull, (c) Sean Patterson, 2012

The walk follows the route taken by Charles Booth in 1899 to research his famous poverty maps.
Along the way we experience one of London's most vivid high streets and hear tales of Captain Bligh's Bounty expedition, the blitz, the residency of Peter the Great of Russia and the death of Christopher Marlowe. We see the new Market Yard development and discuss the gentrification of the area.
