About the original building

The Cuming Museum

Address: The Cuming Museum
Old Walworth Town Hall
151 Walworth Road
SE17 1RY

The Cuming Museum in Southwark has been gutted by fire and subsequently subjected to theft from the ruins. The Newington Parish Vestry Hall was opened in 1856; in 1899 it became the Town Hall for the Metropolitan Borough of Southwark, remaining so until 1965. In 2006 the Cuming Museum moved into part of the building, which also housed Newington Library and the council’s One Stop Shop (both also damaged in the fire).
