Lambeth is defined by water: the Thames marks its northern boundary while the Effra flows from Norwood to Vauxhall like a secret underground spine. Taking the two rivers as its frame, Water Lambeth sets paintings, photographs and maps from Lambeth Archives alongside contemporary photographers’ work to document the vanished medieval village of ‘ Water Lambeth’, Doulton’s river side pottery works and the hidden course of the Effra.
