The Rotherhithe Babes

The Rotherhithe Babes are a group of women from south east London, in their 80s and 90s - many of whom have known each other for more than 50 years.

The Babes are still good friends today meet up regularly to reminisce about the past. They're the subject of a new book which records some of their fascinating conversations about mischief, community, eccentric characters, courting, family and tragedy.
