The New River's 400th Anniversary

An illustrated talk about the New River

This incredible four hundred year old artificial waterway was designed to bring fresh water from Hertfordshire into London and is still doing so today.

Originally nearly forty miles long the New Rivers path meandered from Chadwell (via Bowes Park!) to The New River Head near Sadlers Wells.

The illustrated talk will last an hour including an opportunity to ask questions and to look at some rare books. You can also enjoy a drink or a snack during or after the talk if you like.

The Step is located in the Bowes Park conservation area. They serve delicious locally sourced food and tasty drinks and sell handmade gifts by the best designer-makers.
