Considering the history of the City that is largely under our feet, we will start at Blackfriars and discuss the development of the Tube in the City and how it relates to embanking the Thames, Peer over Blackfriars Bridge to see if we can spot where the River Fleet feeds into the Thames, discuss modern day sewers and then weave through the site of the old Blackfriars Monastery and through the heart of the City to view remains of archaeology, where human remains were once buried, see where water conduits were installed, 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.
