Liquid History: A Walk Along the Fleet

Sunday 26 June 2011, 11.00-13.30

Explore one of London’s great lost rivers: the mighty Fleet, a one-time trade route, moat and sewer. Take in medicinal spas, medieval tidal mills, a bishop’s palace from the Wars of the Roses, a Georgian bear-baiting pit, a Dickensian rubbish dump and two of London’s most notorious prisons and ruminate on the stomach-churning reality of London’s relationship with dirt.

Tour leader: Richard Barnett, author of 'Medical London'.

The event is FREE.
