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.
