Joe Studman explores this quintessential East London Neighbourhood. He will look at the Green, or Barmy Park, which will need explaining as will the legend of famous pub, The Blind Beggar.
In earlier years, Pepys stored valuables in the area during The Great Fire of London and Bloody Mary’s henchman had his Manor House here. What you learn may surprise you.
