Encyclopedia Article for Newington

area in the borough of Southwark, London. It lies southeast of Waterloo Station and west of Bermondsey. In the 19th century the area was developed as a residential suburb, and several roads and railways were built, converting Newington into a transportation hub for London south of the River Thames. Central to the area is the Elephant and Castle, a large traffic roundabout named for an 18th-century inn. Near the roundabout are the Metropolitan Tabernacle (1861), the London College of Printing, and the Elephant and Castle railway station. Newington was devastated by the aerial bombings that targeted London in World War II, and it was largely redeveloped in the 1960s.
