About the event
Once stately barges brought important visitors to Lambeth Palace and small boats unloaded their cargoes of sheep. Find out how the marshy acres of Water Lambeth become a bustling hive of industries as we will trace the development and demise pf the munitions factories and glassworks of the mid-seventeenth century to the vinegar works, potteries and breweries of the nineteenth.
Join your Lambeth Tour Guide, Jenni Bowley, to discover gin-makers, brewers, ironworks, a coffee roastery and, of course, a few larger-than-life characters along the way.
