A curious filmmaker is on the hunt for like-minded London lovers to help document the cultural and historical significance of the capital's borough districts.

Dewyne Lindsay, a videographer and a Lewisham native, began his London Districts web-series in 2017 in which he provides guided virtual tours of the hundreds of London districts, something he says was completely accidental.

"It was more of an accident actually.

"It was just a day when I went to Shooter's Hill to test out a new camera and I just started filming the local area.

"When I sat and thought about it then, I thought I could feel more connected to an area if I really knew how the name came about, what certain road names meant, what the area meant, what it came to be, etc.

"People go by places on their way to work and don’t know anything about them. This stuff is kind of hidden under the surface

"People know spotty, historical facts about Westminster, but nothing about the fringe districts. They need some love too," he said.

Although a videographer and documentary maker by profession, Dewyne says this project is more of a labour of love rather than something done for monetary gain.

He also spoke to News Shopper about his time as one of the lead videographers for the Vote Leave campaign, but said it was just a paid job for him, unlike the London Districts project.

"I was the main Vote Leave videographer, but it was just a gig for me though at the time," he said.

So far, Dewyne and his small team have managed to create 40 of the quirky mini-documentaries, covering areas across south-east London and beyond including Abbey Wood; Sydenham; Hither Green and Deptford.

However, he is now looking to expand his operation and is in need of more researchers to help cover other areas north of the Thames.

"I want to increase the frequency of the videos so I’m calling out to others who wish want to get involved.

"There’s 326 districts and I plan to cover them all, but I’ll need some help with some of them," he explained.
