Also on Thursday March 14th 1918 to Saturday 16th "The Happy Warrior" and "The Grey Ghost" part2.

The terrace consists of two houses with two floors and an attic floor, and two houses with three floors, These survivors from the 18th century now look out onto a very busy Jamaica Road and have the Jubilee Line running underneath. Major Road & Bermondsey Station to the left. 2018.
