Cattle, Convicts & Celts

July 10 @ 11:00 - 13:00

£12 – £17

Expect a once innovative prison, an establishment for fatherless Scottish children, the revolutionary impact of the railways and omnibus and the remnants of the huge livestock market that fuelled the Victorian mega-city with meat.

This circular walk commissioned by The London Metropolitan Archives continues a series covering the broad sweep of London’s history. It explores the dramatic impact of the Victorian era on the area in and around Caledonian Road. To tie in with The London Metropolitan Archive’s current exhibition on “The Lost Victorian City”  the walk includes two significant lost institutions.
