[UNVERIFIED CONTENT] Bermondsey Street was the old High Street connecting the riverside with the parish church.It still has a village character but most of the shops are now offices. <i> Grade II listed, House, early C19. Grey brick with stucco cornice and pediment. 2 storeys, attic and basement, 3 bays. Steps up to central 6-panel door in stucco doorcase with pilasters supporting entablature with frieze and cornice. Lunette in tympanum. Gauged, flat brick arches to sash windows with glazing bars and stucco sills. No.191 and the Church of St Mary Magdalene form a group.</i> <b>British Listed Buildings</b> <i>Bermondsey is almost certainly one of the oldest parts of Southwark. It is believed that a Benedictine Monastery was based here during Saxon times and evidence has been found of Roman occupation. In the Second World War Bermondsey was one of the most heavily bombed parts of Britain with 709 civilians killed and thousands hurt. Further economic decline followed after the war. A new breed of super tankers needed deeper docks than Bermondsey could offer. In 1970 the docks closed their doors for the last time. With the decline of the docks much of the food processing industry moved away. </i> <a href='http://www.southwark.gov.uk/info/200159/history_of_southwark/1009/bermondsey_history/1' rel='nofollow'>www.southwark.gov.uk/info/200159/history_of_southwark/100...</a>
