Lewisham Underwater is part of In Living Memory, a programme to celebrate Lewisham’s history and diversity, led by Goldsmiths, University of London with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Lewisham Underwater

On 15 September 1968, following days of torrential rain, much of Lewisham found itself under water. This project will gather the memories of local people who were affected, connecting an event over 50 years ago with the current climate emergency. Do you or a family member remember the great flood of 1968?
