Event description
Discover what it largely hidden beneath the streets of the City of London, train and tube lines, sewers, burials, and remains of buildings.

About this Event

Our virtual journey starts at Blackfriars, considering the history of the City that is largely under our feet. We discuss the development of the Tube in the City and how it relates to embanking the Thames, learn about the hidden River Fleet which feeds into the Thames and discuss modern day sewers. We then weave through the narrow streets to the site of the old Blackfriars Monastery and through the heart of the City. We view archaeological remains; where human remains were once buried; see where water conduits were installed and walk along a former river that, in later times, became a drain before clogging up completely. We will finish our Journey by London Bridge, at the site of the first deep level tube station.

It will be conducted as an illustrated presentation using the Zoom video conferencing app.
