Quick Help

The whole Website is made up of many blogs and a few extra pages, forming a complex set of articles relating to Inner London. All the blogs are indexed by location. Look under the ‘Categories‘ list (on the right-hand side of the Webpage). All the Inner London Boroughs are listed and subdivided into the old Metropolitan Boroughs.

For example, if you want a list of all the blogs for Deptford, this is listed under ‘/Lew’ for the London Borough of Lewisham. So, look down the list for ‘/Lew-Deptford’. Click on the name which will list all the current blogs related to Deptford.

For further help with ‘Categories‘, look under the long narrow picture at the top of the Webpage. Then look for the black bar below the pictures. Click on the one marked ‘Categories‘.


If you are in a hurry to look at the history of London then, using the ‘Categories’ list (on the right-hand side of the Webpage), look down (towards the end of the list) until you come to –

‘Lon_Metropolitan London History’

Click on that name. It gives a shortlist of blogs which have been specially written to give a general introduction to the history of London. Read through the blogs that are listed. They will help you understand the structure of London along with a description of how it developed.
