Camden is known for the Regent’s Canal, but it has another water source – the buried River Fleet. Two tributaries converge just north of Camden Town. Following their course leads back to a pre-industrial time before Camden was little more than a pub among fields. When the railways arrived, Camden Town sprang up beside the Fleet at the edge of London, and was soon a 19th century turmoil of dirt and poverty, factories and warehouses, outcasts and exiles, artists and writers, all sharing a few streets. Any sign of the river water was soon hidden under roads and housing, but the curves of the streets bely the river’s course. The walk explores hidden Camden, including the course of the Fleet, and visiting significant buildings, surviving and vanished, that connects into Camden’s past. One of the Museum of Walking's London Loss series of walkshops.
