Lambeth North

Lambeth North. The name Lambeth is a reminder of the days when ships from all parts of the world sailed into the heart of London along the River Thames. Recorded in 1041 as Lambhyo and as Lanchei in the Domesday Book, it is derived from Old English Lambe and hythe, 'a haven' or 'port' - and means 'the port where lambs or cattle are shipped'. The suggestion that the first element of the name is from Old English lam 'dirt' or 'mud' can be discounted.

The station was opened as KENNINGTON ROAD on 10 March 1906; re-named WESTMINSTER BRIDGE ROAD on 5 August 1906; and LAMBETH NORTH on 15 April 1917.
