The spark of Rebellion in Bow and Mile End Walk

Soon after this walk begins you find yourself gazing at the grand houses of Tredegar Square, on land once owned by captains of the Welsh iron industry, but the landscape changes as you discover the site of the City of London Union workhouse at St Clements in which 800 of the desperate poor of the area were incarcerated.
On this walk you will discover how, in the 1880s, the exploited and the oppressed fought for their rights in the factories, in the gas works, in immigrant tailoring workshops and at the docks. You will find some unexpected links between their struggles for better lives. Names such as Annie Besant, Eleanor Marx, Will Thorne and Ben Tillett become a major part of the story.
As the tour crosses into the 20th century it walks through sites connected with the East London Suffragettes, led by Sylvia Pankhurst, and the Poplar Labour councillors, led by George Lansbury, who risked prison rather than force unfair rates on their constituents.

AfL visits are open to members (£5.00) and non-members (£8.00).  To book your place please contact, Lucy Shepherd [log in to unmask] (Basement Flat, 42 Danbury Street, London, N1 8JU). The visit starts at 2pm.
