Description

De Wint’s watercolour shows the tower of St Mary’s Church, Lambeth, which is the only part of the original 12th Century building to survive. The main body of the church was largely rebuilt shortly after de Wint’s death. It suffered neglect and in 1972 was deconsecrated with a view to demolish it. However, it was rescued by Rosemary and John Nicholson who formed the Tradescant Trust, restored the building and established the Garden Museum, the world’s first museum of garden history.
