Writer and archivist Jon Newman uncovers the history and course of what is arguably the least-understood of London’s underground rivers, the Heathwall.
For centuries it has
defined the parish and borough boundaries
between Battersea, Clapham, Lambeth and Wandsworth while its tributaries, the Holburne and the Heathwall Brook both flow through Clapham. Consigned underground by Bazalgette in 1865 as part of his London main drainage scheme, it has largely been forgotten.
Jon has just published a book on the river’s history and this will be on sale at the meeting.
