March talk: The River Effra’s vanishing act


Monday 21 March: The River Effra’s vanishing act
Jon Newman from Lambeth Archives uncovers the sorry story of the River Effra, once a sparkling stream running the length of Lambeth but long since downgraded to underground storm relief sewer. He maps its course from the high ground of Norwood through Herne Hill, Brixton and Kennington to the Thames at Vauxhall.

Events are normally held on the third Monday evening in the month.
6.45 for 7.15pm at the Durning Library. Light refreshments. Everyone welcome.
No admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.
