The Royal Oak is the successor to the Walnut Tree inn maintained by Lewes Priory on the site of London Bridge Station. Normally the horses make deliveries around the town of Lewes once a week but there are plans for a return visit to Southwark. c 2014

Tabard School Centre, Bermondsey 2016. Picture taken from Tabard St, Tabard School Centre is between Hunter Close(left) and Prioress Street (right). Another bit of information, which I never realised, is that the back of Hartley’s Jam factory is at the end of Prioress St.

kiwi wrote:Tabard Park holds some good memories for me, as we use to go there from Webb Street School (1947/53?) to play football, if my memory holds me right the pitch was that red stuff, was it ash? In those days, it had a wire fence all the way around it but no health and safety then. At that time the fence was held up by big iron girders, which believe it or not were on the inside. At that age, you chased and kick anything that moved, unfortunately I managed to kick one of the girders, don’t think I broke my foot but it hurt like hell and stopped me playing for quite a few weeks. In those days if you were lucky enough to have football boots, they had hard toes and came up past your ankles with studs held in by small nails which would come up through you boots and stick into your foot, by the end of the game your feet were covered in blood. At that time, I had a pair of hand me downs which were about two sizes to big, so I had newspaper stuffed up the toes. Shin pads were those little paperback books which I think were called Hank Janson?, still they done the job. I can remember The Royal Oak pub and St Stephens Church also some of the surrounding streets. I can vaguely remember an Ice Cream Factory in Hankey Place, though it was only small, also a butter factory next door.

What a great memory you have Kiwi! I went to Melior Street School and also frequented Tabard Park. You've just described the playing field and the football boots perfectly. The hard toe caps, the stuffed newspaper inside if they didn't fit and the shin pads. I thought that I was the only one that had studs that had nails that eventually came through the soles of the boots to make my feet bleed and put a hole in my socks. The red soil there seemed unique to me as I can't remember playing anywhere else that had that kind of layer.

I remember playing football in Tabard Street. Also the church in the park was where The Dave Clark 5 made a film and all their gear got nicked!

These brilliant posts & pictures. Originally posted by fosney in 2012, are of the area in and around Tabard Street, (Borough end). For that reason, I have decided to post them in the Tabard Street Topic.

Tabard Estate - Fox's Buildings.
Fox's Buildings was a small area to the south of Sterry Street and to the north of St Stephens Square.
On the 1914 map we can see Fox's Buildings adjacent to what is now Pilgrimage Street (which had not then been named) but shown as an extension to Globe Street. This area is now part of the Tabard Garden Estate.
The entrance to Fox's Buidings was through an opening in Tabard Street as we can see from the pictures. We can also see from the pictures that the houses were ready for demolition, although it would be some 25 years before this would take place. It would seem that the buildings in Tabard Street were in the same condition at this time.
The map from 1950 shows the position of Fox's Buildings in relation to Tabard Gardens, and we can see that the part of Globe Street to the north of Great Dover Street has been renamed as Pilgrimage Street through to Long Lane.
