Death on the Brighton Road - a Journey through South London - A talk by Jon Newman

7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Death on the Brighton Road is an account of a recent nine mile journey along the old coach road between Kennington and South Croydon. It contrasts the present-day streetscape with the history and associations of the long-forgotten execution sites that once dominated this route out of London: at Kennington, Brixton, Thornton Heath and at Smitham Bottom. In the eighteenth century these were all the locations for gallows and gibbets. David Western’s accompanying pen and ink and watercolour illustrations capture the same locations today.

This is a limited edition publication and all copies are numbered and signed by author and artist.

Cost: Free of Charge
