About this Event

Celebrate 200 years of Regent's Canal on this guided walk along and around the Canal. Discover its history from its hey-day in the nineteenth century, through its decline in the 1960s to its subsequent re-invention as a place for people to live, work and play. See buildings old and new and hear stories of the canal past, present and future.

Walks will start at the City Road end of the City Road Basin near Chronicle tower and Will finish by the Narrowboat pub (close to the other end of the Basin).

Jamie Lynch of YATI says “Community Theatre is such a great tool for celebrating where we live and who we live with; we are so grateful to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for supporting us. We have brought local elders to share their stories of Islington’s past with some of its newest residents and collected lots of memories and photos over the few months. We have all learnt such a lot and we're delighted to share these at the exhibition and in the booklet."
