This map shows Bermondsey at its most intensely urban.

It is a landscape of warehouses and wharves near the river and densely packed housing further inland.

The density is relieved by Southwark Park, London's first municipal park opened in 1868; the Bricklayer's Arms goods railway and a small area of better than average housing near Fort Road.
