St Olaves Church,Bermondsey.

The site of the church was sold and redeveloped with an Art Deco office building which became the headquarters of the Hay’s Wharf Company. This still stands on Lower Tooley Street and is now called St Olaf’s House; it bears a plaque giving information on the demolished St Olave's Church and its patron saint.

It's great to see Tooley Street so busy and vibrant now, but as that picture shows, it's a real shame they've allowed so much ugly and inappropriate re-development.

I suppose its a sign of whats to come - especially when you see whats being built at Chambers Wharf, Bermondsey Spa regeneration, the Shard and Three Towers.

Mark Browns Wharf --Tooley Street

Records show that Mark Browns Wharf (Formerly Curling Wharf) stood in Pickle Herring Street an extention of Shad Thames.

Today it has been replaced by the oddly shaped building known as London City Hall but I ask how long will this building stand for?

Tooley Street

Again we return to the Tooley Street area, and like most of us I was unaware that Shot Manufactory existed in Tooley Street. The tower stood adjacent to London Bridge and St Olaves Church and was used to make lead shot (see Wikipedia Shot Tower for explanation ). The only other Shot Tower I am aware of is the one that stood at Waterloo Bridge on the site of the Festival Of Britain in 1950.
After the manufacture of shot ceased the tower was used by Watsons Telegraph for an early system of sending telgraphic signals. In 1843 the area was once again consumed by fire, the tower and Church were destroyed but the Church was rebuilt and survived to the twentieth century.
The Navy Board had leased Gun and Shot Wharf in Morgan's Lane off Tooley Street - it makes one wonder if the shot was transported to the wharf to be loaded aboard ships.
