Found this on Facebook - quite interesting. Tells about the archaeological dig before the recent redevelopment, and how the antiques market has survived.

Bermondseyboy, if you can embed this video, I'd be grateful - can't see how to do it on here.

You're welcome freddie. Hopefully others will enjoy as well. I particularly enjoyed listening to the local dealers - such a cheerful bunch. The archaeologists sounded local as well, or at any rate London in general.

Although times have changed and the last I heard was that the antique stall holders/traders were not too happy about the council raising the rents and they were moving out!

HI EVERYONE.

Great video of Bermondsey Square Kathy, watched with mixed feelings. Firstly it was nice to see both young and old say they were happy the way it had turned out, not sure if all of them were locals or just travelled in for the Market. Which at the end of the day doesn’t really matter if they work there and they are happy that’s a bonus? As for me, being brought up in the forties and fifties in and around that area a little bit sad. We still have our memories and this great site to keep them alive with pictures and videos, all I need now is a mirror that doesn’t keep reminding me I was born in 1942.

Hoping Freddie can keep us up to date regarding the raising of the rents, be a shame after all of the changes the stall holders/traders decided to move out.
