Event Description

Our London talks with Peter Berthoud, a London Guide and Writer, looks at an unusual aspect of London’s history.

Thursday 23rd May, 7.30pm

The next talk will be on London’s New River which celebrates its 400th birthday this September.

This incredible four hundred year old artificial waterway was designed to bring fresh water from Hertfordshire into London and is still doing so today. Originally nearly forty miles long the New River’s path meandered from Chadwell (via Bowes Park!) to The New River Head near Sadler’s Wells.

The illustrated talk will last an hour including an opportunity to ask questions and to look at some rare books.

You can also enjoy a drink, meal or snack before, during or after the talk – there will be an interval and we’ll be offering a special Discover London deal or any main meal and a glass of wine for £11!

The price for each talk is £7 or £5 for concessions.

We went to this talk last night. It was absolutely fascinating and made us feel very excited about our local Hidden River Festival on 22 September to celebrate the 400th anniversary of this extraordinary feat of engineering.
