Regular readers of this blog...

...will be familiar with the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, and with the Church of the Most Precious Blood at London Bridge. But they, and others, might be interested to get a flavour of the thing from this post..

I agree with you that Southwark is a very historic location with lots of placenames reflecting its riverside location, like Bankside; the Marshalsea Prison is NOT one of them. It is named after the King's official in charge of the prison - the Marshal just like a nearby prison the King's Bench.
Also, Southwark Cathedral started life as a convent in the C7; by the C10 it was a college of Priests - hence it is still called a colleigate church.
When are your next history walks?
