Event description

Description

The Holloway firefighters depicted in Niki Gibbs’ wonderful pictures have inspired us to create a walk based around the emergency services in the area, majoring on the firemen of Clerkenwell. You’ll get to hear about the Great Fire of London and the changes it wrought and visit one of its famous destinations, There will be stops to talk about some devastating local fires and other incidents over the years and how they affected future firefighting. We'll also be visiting the site of, at one time, the oldest working Fire Station in London.

The walk will end at the Islington Museum where you van view Niki’s excellent Mobilise Mobilise exhibition of paintings
