Rather interesting Lambeth facts

Did you know that Lambeth Bridge is painted Red to be in harmony with the seat colour of the House of Lords? Rather a strange gesture given that Parliament obstructed the building of the bridge in 1664, 1828, and 1836 – and in 1912 blocked the widening of the one finally constructed in 1860.

Did you know that the oldest fig Tree in Britain stands in Lambeth Palace garden - planted by Cardinal Pole in the 16th Century? It is of the White Marseilles type, said to bear excellent fruit.
