As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Bermondsey.
History of Bermondsey
Bermondsey adopts it's name from a Saxon landowner. This is, for example, Biermond. example. This term means an island, promontory or in this case an "island" of land surrounded by swamps.
In the Middle Ages, the Cluny monastery was located in the center of this settlement. It was founded in 1089 by a merchant named Ilwin Child. (Initially it was a seat, but it became a monastery). However, Henry VIII closed it in the 16th century, but it lives on Abbey Street. A man named Sir Thomas Pope destroyed the school. Instead, a “good house of stone and wood” was built of monastic materials.
Bermondsey became an industrial center in the 18th and 19th centuries. It was famous for skinning and leather processing. There was also a chalice industry (a kind of cotton).
And with the rapid growth of the Port of London, many shipyards and warehouses were built in Bermondsey. Another industry in Bermondsey in the 19th century was food processing. Food was unloaded in many busy ports. However, in the late 20th century, parts of Bermondsey changed. The London Docklands Development Corporation was established in 1981 and has invested heavily in the regeneration of Bermondsey. Where food was once unloaded and stored in warehouses, there are now residences, offices and restaurants.
Bermondsey is also known for its Fashion and Textile Museum, which opened in 2003. Today, Bermondsey is famous for its antiques market.

Bermondsey, once an important part of London's river trade, decayed for decades until the area's port was restored in the 1980s. It is now a bustling part of town with a few exceptionally good restaurants and cafes, though sometimes hard to find. Bermondsey has many great pubs and pubs that are usually packed with visitors and regulars. Bermondsey can turn Londoners into tourists: Scoop attracts suburbs and locals alike, especially with its quality free events.
