Plaque: St Mary's Church Tower

Erection date: 1913


This tower, being in imminent danger of ruin owing to the weakness of the foundations, was underpinned and made secure. In memory of Emily Blanche Carr-Gomm Lady of the Manor of Rotherhithe, by her son Hubert William Culling Carr-Gomm, Member of Parliament for Rotherhithe AD 1913.

Site: St Mary the Virgin Rotherhithe (4 memorials)

SE16, St Marychurch Street, St Mary the Virgin Church

The Christopher Jones statue is on the left of the picture, and Prince Lee Boo's tomb in the centre (next to the rather incongruous children's climbing frame).

Our information comes from St Marys Rotherhithe's website.
