Opening up the Medieval Tower
As part of the Garden Museum Development Project we are hoping to open the Medieval Tower of St Mary-at-Lambeth to the public.
The Tower is the oldest part of the church of St Mary-at-Lambeth, built in 1377 it is the second oldest structure in Lambeth , and from the top it provides a unique view of London and the river Thames - Wenceslaus Hollar is thought to have stood on top of the tower to draw part of his 1647 'Prospect of London and Westminster'.
Until now the tower has been closed to members of the public but we would like to open this unique and special view up to anyone who wishes to see it. This will involve lifting a steel platform on to the top of the tower using a mobile crane and will cost around £50,000 to complete.
