Battle of Lewisham

On 13 August 1977 local people and anti-fascist activists united to stop the racist National Front from marching through the streets of Lewisham. The confrontation which followed was the largest of its kind between the British far-right and their opponents since the Second World War. It has since become known as The Battle of Lewisham.

Forty years later Lewisham Local History and Archives Centre created an exhibition to mark the anniversary which went on display in Lewisham Library.
