Peabody Buildings Bermondsey Picture early 1900s

Built in 1875 in East Lane by The Peabody Donation Trust later to become Peabody Trust to house respectable working people. The trust was founded by an American Merchant Banker George Peabody.

Can anyone enlighten us on the The Rope Walk Factory shown on the plan to the rear of the buildings and was between East Lane and New Church Street (now Gone)
In the today picture the buildings were on the ground to the right

This might not be the Rope Walk you have mentioned, only there was a number of places called Rope Walk in & around this area including Pages Walk at one time. It doe's give you an idea of what it could have looked like.

East Lane, Bermondsey 1890  X.jpg
East Lane, Bermondsey, 1890. East Lane, ran from Neckinger to Bermondsey Wall, River Thames at East Lane Stairs. As the style of houses suggests, it was an ancient thoroughfare.
