Manze Court / House The Manze family have run Eel, pie and mash shops in the area since 1902, including the one on Tower Bridge Road
Sir Winton Court / House Sir Nicholas Winton saved more than 600 Jewish children from the Nazis in 1938

You can read more about all these remarkable people in the document attached below.

In looking for names for places in Southwark we have a number of considerations, including:

  • that there is a strong connection to Southwark or South East London
  • representative of our diverse community, in line with the principles of Southwark Stands Together, but also recognising that women have historically been under-represented
  • the positive impact of the named individual
  • that the person is no longer alive
