Very quickly, and I hope to expand on this later, I am leading a guided walk around Vauxhall next Saturday.
The Mayor has his eye on it, the Russians visited, a vulture looks down upon it. Vauxhall, home to MI6, gave its name to a car brand, and was synonymous with pleasure gardens. Today it is once more on the cusp of change.
So, if all you know of Vauxhall is what you have seen in the James Bond films, or the current remake of A Very British Coup, come along.
Or maybe you live in the area and can tell me new stories, come along.
If you know nothing at all about Vauxhall, perhaps have never even heard of it, come along.
Bring a camera and make sure you have room for some cake.
The walk starts outside Vauxhall tube in the bus station part, exit 2, at 10.45. It lasts about two hours and costs £9, £7 for over 65s and full-time students.
