A  Chance to learn more about this local history

Stories of the suburbs of Clapham continue with a walk in the area and if you were unable to attend Mike Tuffrey’s talk last week, you might want to go on the walk that will bring the stories to life.

You may have already visited the Brixton Windmill garden and you can also learn more about Brixton Windmill at their annual talk.

The two events we highlight for this last week of the Festival are below.

This is by no means all so check the full progamme to make the most of the last week of the Lambeth Heritage Festival (click here ).

We look forward to seeing you there!

About the walk

Edwardian Clapham – The man who built an Edwardian neighbourhood
Wed 29th Sept at 6:30pm, in-person
Mike Tuffrey will lead a walk round the streets between Cavendish Road and Narbonne Avenue exploring how the neighbourhood came to be built, and revealing the identity of the elusive land agent – a linen draper from Tottenham and sometime felon – who made it all happen.
This event is hosted by the Clapham Society. Book here
