Wild and Wonderful Women of Southwark

Fair Maids, Feminists and Philanthropists. It’s a walk that corrects the balance.



The stars wear petticoats, not pantaloons. Women may not apear as often as men in the history books, but that doesn’t mean they have been sitting at home twiddling their thumbs. Far from it. Knitting up a storm more like. From princesses to prostitutes, they have made their mark and shaped the world we live in today. Some have relied their looks, others their wit.

We’ll trace the steps of the famous, the infamous, and the virtually unknown Fair Maids, Feminists and Philanthropists in this corner of Southwark.

  1. One of your two bad pennies from California turning up again here just to thank you for the walk. As usual, volumes of information to half forget until further reading jogs the memory that I had heard that story once before, while standing in the cold listening to you.

    • Hi Kathy, nice to hear you are home safe and lovely to read you here! Do drop in and comment when you can. I’ll look forward to seeing your name between now and the next time you are over.
