Map of Lambeth North and Kennington, 1807


A map showing Lambeth North and North Kennington.

Lambeth Palace, the London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and St Mary's Church are seen on the top left corner.

Further inland, few residential roads run through the farmland and wooded areas, and housing is mainly concentrated along Walcot Place, now Kennington Road.

Most of the developed area and industries are seen along the river bank of the Thames, which provided the main mode of transport.
