London’s Lost Rivers

Tom Bolton is a researcher and writer, specialising in the culture and history of London.
His latest book London’s Lost Rivers: A Walker’s Guide is an evocative, witty and engaging text about how this ancient city was built around rivers other than the Thames.

Bolton’s talk will outline routes of eight lost rivers with the history of each river’s route, origin and decline – a secret network that spreads across the city, from picturesque Hampstead in the North to the hidden suburbs of South London and beneath some of London’s most iconic and historic sites. These London pasts are brought to vivid life, populated by characters both famous and infamous, including politicians, forgers, actors, architects, athletes, monarchs and murderers.
