Crosby Row Long Lane (Yesterday & Today)

Lets move over to Long Lane and Crosby Row where we have a picture from 100 years looking into Crosby Row from Long Lane, which shows how it was with St Hughs Church appearing through the fog.

In the second picture we see that the top of the Church has gone and the area is overlooked by the Shard.

The last picture shows the Church has been demolished and the whole area is dominated by the height of the Shard.

One more for today. This is a picture of the Hamilton square buildings from within the Crosby Row flats . Taken in the late 60s this shows the crane of the Guys Tower at the top and through the trees the old London Bridge Tower building which has just been demolished. The old school building (which is still there) is just to the right out of the shot, and the wall is still there.

The building on the corner of Crosby Row and Porlock St was demolished in the summer of 2011. Crosby Row, St Hugh’s and in the shadow of the Guy’s Hospital Tower,the building looked more like a school or factory than a church. St Hugh's is part of Charterhouse in Southwark (C-i-S), a mission established in 1885 by old boys of the Surrey-based public school, to provide food, clothes and spiritual support to the slum dwellers of Bermondsey.They began with a shop in Tabard Street but in 1892 the first stone was laid for a three storey building which would provide a church on the ground floor and on the floors above, a boys club, a gymnasium and a base for their welfare work. The building was dedicated as St Hugh's Church in 1898 in honour of the Carthusian monk, St Hugh of Lincoln.
