About the Website

This Website is one of several maintained by Adrian. Each 'Know Your London' Website carries information to help you get to know Inner London and its history. Some of the Websites are 'open-access'. Others are password protected for members only.


This Website, called the 'Notebook', concentrates on News Stories; illustrated articles on the history of Inner London; and notes of interest to the 'Know Your London' group which meet each month on location for a walk (lasting about an hour) on a Tuesday morning.


There is a 'sister' Website, called the 'Gallery' which presents numerous images that Adrian has taken over the years. He has a collection of slides, prints and digital images covering the whole of Inner London.

About Adrian Prockter

Adrian has been lecturing about London to adults for over 40 years. He has a detailed knowledge of the City of London and all the 12 Inner London boroughs. All his lectures are illustrated by slides and digital images he has taken himself.

During the 1980s and 1990s Adrian worked freelance for the London Docklands Development Corporation (LDDC) as history adviser and, among many other assignments, he oversaw the wording and historical accuracy of the large round black plaques to be found all over the Surrey Docks area.

Adrian has been invited to put on large slide-shows, giving historical presentations at the Museum of London. They have included the history of Bankside, in Southwark; the history of the River Thames in Inner London; and a history of Forest Hill and Sydenham.

Adrian is the author of the 'A-Z of Elizabethan London', an index to the very first complete map of Central London which dates from about 1561. Published as an A4-size book, it is published jointly by the Guildhall Library and the London Topographical Society.

Weekly lectures have been given by Adrian at Adult Education Institutes all over Inner London when he ran a six-year course on the history of Inner London.
