Event description

Description

Meet at the London Metropolitan Archives

Flowing from springs and ponds on Hampstead Heath and emptying into the Thames, the Fleet river has witnessed 2,000 years of London’s history but now lies forgotten under the streets of the capital. We’ll trace the last part of its journey from Mount Pleasant and hear the stories about the River of the Wells, exploring the history of the pleasant spas and gardens of Clerkenwell down to the clogged and dirty river of the City. Tour includes a visit to the Clerk’s Well. Why not take the opportunity to visit the LMA’s exhibition first?
