Walking The Rip-Off, 29th April 2012. Southwark Notes Archive Group.

Southwark Notes welcomes you again for a lovely walk round the sites of the slow but steady gentrification of the local area. With a local estate in perfect condition now empty and a bunch of tall towers planned, come and hear the stories, see all the sites and learn together what we can do about it. – Poster advertising (The Return Of…) Walking The Rip-Off, Southwark Notes, 23rd February 2013.

Southwark Notes Archive Group hosted walks around the Heygate and Aylesbury Estates before and during the regeneration planning and demolition, from 2011 until 2014. These walks were open to the public and often combined a regeneration archive session at nearby 56a Infoshop, SE1. The walks and workshops were always activist happening questioning the regeneration of the area, with Southwark Notes exploring and sharing ‘what we can do about it’.
