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.
