With thanks to @oldmanman on Twitter for the following:
“Strand is from anglo-saxon for shoreline, back in earlier times it was. Another maritime connection is parish of St Clement Danes, symbol an anchor. Marine Soc. now in Lambeth Rd and on my Lambeth old map walk.”
So a double nautical connection for Strand. Yay!
One response to “Update on nautical themes”
I did know the origin of Strand, from my youth.
Best wishes, Pete.
