Thursday 14th April: ‘Elephant Memory’

Heygate walkway 3_HDR.jpg

In search of long-lost Sayer Street and its recuperation by property developer Lend Lease in 2016, our coordinates will include the Elephant & Castle’s doomed shopping centre and the emerging retail park to navigate a spatial and temporal course in and around this prime ‘regeneration opportunity area’.  In the course of our walking we will draw upon historical and contemporary fragments as well as discussion to construct a history that takes as its starting point a parallel and coincidence separated by 75 years.
