Demolition has begun on Chambers Wharf ready for a new development which will restore the riverside path along Bermondsey Wall.
Chambers Wharf lies between Rotherhithe and St Saviour’s Dock near Tower Bridge. At present walkers have to divert along Chambers Street at the back .
On Wednesday Simon Hughes, Liberal Democrat MP for Southwark North and Bermondsey, joined representatives from property development company St Martin’s on the four acre site to mark the official start of the first phase of work.
The present cold store has recently been used for document storage. The major residential scheme will provide 200 affordable homes.
