Winchester Square
Southwark, London

Formerly known as St. Mary's Overy Wharf

Winchester Square is a modern redevelopment of the old dock warehouses at St. Mary's Overy Wharf; though the buildings bear little resemblance to the streets from the 1970s, the iron buttress on the corner has been retained in the new design.
