The Templars in London

Coming up this week at South East London Folklore Society, the very erudite Rob Stephenson will be givng an illustrated talk on the Templars in London, discussing places in London that were either occupied, owned or had some connection with the Knight Templars and their dramatic downfall, including the sites of their imprisonment and interrogation.

All at the Old King's Head, Kings Head Yard 45-49, Borough High Street, London, SE1 1NA (by London Bridge), 8 pm start, all for the price of a pint.

Not sure what South London sites will be featured. As Brockley Central reported a while back, Brockley once belonged to the Templars along with the manor of Deptford (or West Greenwich as it was then known)

The manor of Paris Garden, on the South Bank, also belonged to the Templars for a while.
