The Roots project tells the story of Walworth Road based G. Baldwin & Co., one of the oldest and most established herbalists in London, and the many customers who have frequented the shop over its long history. Southwark Pensioners Centre worked with volunteers from the local community to create recorded oral histories of the area and present heritage talks and research.

If you would like to learn more about the project please contact Julia Honess:
