The Bermondsey Settlement

The Bermondsey Settlement

The Bermondsey Settlement was a settlement house founded in Bermondsey, South-East London, by the Rev. John Scott Lidgett. It was the only Methodist foundation among the settlements that appeared in the late 19th and early 20th century, and like other settlement houses it offered social, health and educational services to the poor of its neighbourhood. It was particularly concerned with educational matters, including music and dance. It is noted for the work of one of its residents, Grace Kimmins, in relation to children's play, and other notable residents included the radical nonconformist Hugh Price Hughes, Grace Kimmins' husband Charles William Kimmins, and doctor and political radical Alfred Salter. The settlement opened in 1892, and was closed in 1967, the building being demolished two years later. An article about the Settlement, written in 1941, is available at http://archive.spectator.co.uk/article/27th-june-1941/7/fifty-years-of-bermondsey .
