Bermondsey is an area in the London Borough of Southwark, south of the river Thames. By the mid-nineteenth century, many parts of Bermondsey had become notorious slums, such as Jacob’s Island, where Bill Sykes meets his grisly end in Dickens’s Oliver Twist. The industry of leather and hides dominated Bermondsey, and the buildings that housed warehouses and former leather markets survive today.
