About Southwark Heritage

All posts from Southwark Council’s Cuming Museum and the Local History Library and Archive.

The Cuming Museum comprises the worldwide and local collections of the Cuming family as well as local and social history collected by the borough during the 20th century. We also care for an extensive art collection.

We’d love to have you visit us but unfortunately the Cuming museum’s galleries are currently closed due to a fire which affected the building housing the displays in March 2013. If you’d like to get in touch please do so on Twitter or email us at cuming.museum@southwark.gov.uk

You can visit the Local History Library and Archive at 211 Borough High Street, SE1 1JA (through John Harvard Library) where we have gathered surviving documents, photographs and film to help preserve and share the range of Southwark’s history along with information on changes in Southwark today. You can also get in touch via Twitter or email us at local.history.library@southwark.gov.uk
