South London fences made from world war two stretchers.
A campaign is underway to protect steel fences in south London made from stretchers formerly used to carry wounded civilians during the Blitz in the capital during world war two.
Campaigners are now calling on city authorities to preserve the so-called stretcher fences which can be found on estates around Brixton, Deptford, East London, Oval and Peckham.
The campaign, led by historians and local residents, began after the recent removal of stretcher fences in the East Dulwich estate on Dog Kennel Hill.
The railings, which can be recognised by indents at each end, were installed in the immediate post-war period after the city was left with more than 600,000 stretchers.
